Cinquains

posted Apr 19, 2012, 10:50 AM by Karen McMillan

Please type up the two cinquains you wrote in class yesterday in a Google Doc. Title the document "[student #] Cinquains" and share it with me. If you need a reminder, here is what was written on the ActivBoard:

Write a cinquain poem about something you can see in the classroom or out the classroom window.

A cinquain follows this format:

Line 1 - One word (a noun) naming the subject of the verse.
Line 2 - Two words (adjectives) describing the subject.
Line 3 - Three words (verbs) describing the subject's actions.
Line 4 - Four words giving the writer's opinion of the subject.
Line 5 - One word (noun) giving another name for the subject.


Example:

Violin
Brown, shapely
Singing, shrieking, sobbing
A moody music maker
Fiddle

Five More Blog Comments

posted Feb 27, 2012, 6:49 AM by Karen McMillan

Your blogging assignment for this week is to once again comment on five different blog posts on five different student blogs. To "turn in" your assignment, you will create a Google spreadsheet like the one below and copy and paste the information into your spreadsheet. The assignment is due Friday.

Here's the catch this week...you cannot comment on the same blogs you commented on last time. In fact, let's do this Caritas style! Don't just comment on your best friends' blogs...choose a blog you haven't read before and find a post to comment on.

If you would like, you can use my spreadsheet, Five Blog Comments, as a template for making your own. Here's what you do:
  • Open the Five Blog Comments spreadsheet.
  • Click on "File" and then select "Make a Copy." 
  • When the small pop-up window opens up, simply replace the words "Copy of" with your student number.
  • Choose "Ok." That's it!

Five Blog Comments

Your blogging assignment for this week is to comment on five different blog posts on five different student blogs. To "turn in" your assignment, you are going to create a Google spreadsheet like the one below and copy and paste the information into your spreadsheet. The assignment is due Friday, so you don't need to write all five comments in one night (unless you're starting this on Thursday).

If you would like, you can use my spreadsheet, Five Blog Comments, as a template for making your own. Here's what you do:
  • Open the Five Blog Comments spreadsheet.
  • Click on "File" and then select "Make a Copy." 
  • When the small pop-up window opens up, simply replace the words "Copy of" with your student number.
  • Choose "Ok." That's it!

Caritas Post

posted Nov 14, 2011, 4:11 PM by Karen McMillan   [ updated Nov 14, 2011, 4:14 PM ]


Now that you've written your Caritas Journal in a Google Doc, I want you to choose one topic to write a paragraph about. I will add each student's paragraph to my camp blog, Miss McMillan Goes to Camp. Write your Caritas Post in a Google Doc and place it in your student folder.

Write about your favorite moment, something that was very meaningful to you, how Caritas helped you learn more about yourself, or perhaps answer one of the four prompts that we had at the camp Celebration. If you're stuck for what to write, please let me know.

Vladik Email

posted Nov 1, 2011, 11:28 AM by Karen McMillan

In a Google Doc, please write an email to Vladik of at least one paragraph. Some of the ideas for this email:
  • Describe your experience at Camp Caritas
  • Describe your first dance
  • Discuss what seventh grade has been like so far. 
  • What are some things you think he should know before joining us? About you and about seventh grade?
This assignment is due this Friday, November 4th. Once I have everyone's document, I will gather them all into one email and send it to Vladik.

The title of your document will be [student #] Vladik Email

In a Google Doc, describe everything you remember about your week at Caritas. This will be a minimum of five paragraphs (one for each day of the week we were gone), so start right away while it's still fresh in your mind. If you weren't at Caritas, you will write about everything you did during your week. (Due Friday)
