English sec 1 — Nancy Antonacci

Hello to all !

Here is a glimpse of what we are working on this month:

Recite tongue twisters (oral exercises)

Grammar: regular and irregular verbs in the simple past

Text comprehension: Black History Month – short texts on Muhammad Ali, Alex Haley, Michael Jordan, Martin Luther King, Mary McLeod Bethune, Rosa Parks, George Washington Carver, Stevie Wonder.

Dictation tests throughout the month of March (check dates in students’ agenda)

Reading and Writing: reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid plus comprehension document to go along with the novel.

Coming soon: after March break, I will be working with a student teacher from Concordia University. She will be with us until Easter break.

P.S. During spring break, please make sure you stock up on pencils, loose leaf sheets, and all other necessary school supplies needed in order to be functional for your English class! Thank you!
