I'm linking up with two fabulous teachers for their Peek at my Week Linky Parties. I'm a newbie at this kind of linky party, but am excited to share what I am doing in my 8th grade ELA classroom.
I know my lesson plans aren't beautiful like some of the other teachers, but this is organized and what works for me!
Monday: We are finishing up main idea. I am using this fabulous product to do a hands on main idea sort in groups. My 8th graders still love to work in groups on hands-on activities, which just thrills me!
Tuesday: We will be taking notes and reviewing figurative language. This is something that is taught in earlier grades so I am hoping that we will be able to do a quick review using the figurative language stuff out of this product. We will also be going to study island in the computer lab to complete the main idea and text features lessons.
Wednesday: The students will be completing a figurative language sheet independently. Its comes from Lovin' Lit's Figurative language stories. (My kiddos LOVED these last year.) We will also begin taking notes over speeches. (this is a new concept in 8th grade)
Thursday & Friday: We will be analyzing different speeches. FYI-> I LOVE this product!!
Here's to a fabulous week!! :)
