Final Narrative: A School with No Teachers

For this assignment we are going to put together all the things we have learned about narrative writing into a final story. I will provide you with the basic structure for the story, but it is your job to build it out into a compelling master piece.

1) Read all the assignment details so that you know what you are doing.

2) Fill out the attached mind - maps and outline Sheets to help you get a good idea for where to start (this way you won't be staring at a blank screen not knowing what to write).

3) Write a rough draft (due next  Friday 5/22) and have some one peer edit it. If you are writing online, expect feedback from Mr. Zachreson as well.

4) Use The Feed back from peer editing to write your final draft, making sure to pay close attention to spelling, dialogue format and dangling modifiers.

Minimum length: 4 pages. Maximum length: 15 pages. 12 point Arial, double spaced.

REMINDER: There are tons of extra notes and helpful guides/videos in our Imaginative Narrative assignment from September/October.

A School With No Teachers


7th Grade History

May 18th-May 29th

Because of the current health situation, we are not allowed to physically attend school, but that does not mean we cannot still be learning history. I have put together instructional lessons that incorporate three components: the PowerPoint Presentation, the Student Response Worksheet and Google Classroom.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO A CELL PHONE OR THE INTERNET, YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GOOGLE CLASSROOM PORTION OF THESE ACTIVITIES.

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Start by working through the PowerPoint presentations. They will teach you content about the lesson and give you instructions about the activities you need to accomplish.

2. Complete the Student Response Worksheet using the information you learned in the PowerPoint presentation.

3. At various points, the PowerPoint presentation will instruct you to log onto Google Classroom and complete a specific activity. Google Classroom can be access using the internet or a cell phone (if students do not have either one of these at home, then they are not responsible for the Google Classroom portion of these activities). Students will use their school log in information to log in at home. This is the same Google Class that we use at school.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at thiggins@soulsbyvilleschool.com

I am going a completely different route for these last two weeks. I thought it would be fun to create a brochure to give to the next year’s class of 7th graders. Your task these last two weeks is to create a tri-fold brochure that explains what 7th grade will be like for next year’s 7th graders. You can include things from before and during distance learning and things from all of your classes. I have attached a template but you can change the headings of sections if you want by using the blank piece of paper included in this packet. You can cut out pictures from magazines, or print pictures, or you can draw pictures in the picture spots (you could also include more text if you want). I also will post a digital copy on google classroom if you’d like to do a digital brochure. The brochure can have sections such as:

  • Things you will learn about: (from any class)
  • Best Project (from any class)
  • Favorite Memory
  • My advice for a successful year is:
  • What you should know about (your teachers):
  • Always remember to:

Remember, the audience is the next year’s 7th graders. Be thoughtful, creative, and tailor it to your memories. Keep it clean and positive! You can turn this in by taking a picture and emailing it to me, create the digital brochure and turn it in on google classroom, or turn it in to the office.

Also, I am available for office hours on Zoom on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 to 3pm each week. The link to join is on my google classroom. I am available to answer any questions you have during that time. You can also join just to say hi! I miss you guys and gals so much!

I am super bummed that the year has to end this way. I will miss you all and wish you all the best in high school.

If you have any questions, please email me.

Hello 7th Grade Math Students:

I hope you are doing well- I miss having us all in class. Please continue to be safe and healthy during this time. I am available for any questions and/or support. I will continue contact with you through SchoolWise, emails, texts to your parents, and in our 7th grade google classroom class code: x7rtaou. Feel free to contact me for whatever reason.

Here is my contact information:

Email: stacheira@soulsbyvilleschool.com or in schoolwise Cell: 209-631-7412 (great for texting, but not for phone calls) Hm: 209-454-0515 (best number for phonecalls)

You will find 2 weeks’ worth of Math work attached for May 4th-May15th. Some of the work will be past lesson review, some will be strengthening concepts from the last few weeks of packets, and other parts will be spiral review of foundational concepts. I have also included a weekly division drill so you can time yourselves like we did at the beginning of each class. Set a timer for 2 minutes and only do one column per day for 4 days of the week M-TH. This is great practice and a brain activator! If you have any difficulties with the math packets, please let me know. I will also post helpful videos to google classroom to help out with the lessons. You will be able to go back and watch previous videos for additional support and review. I am also posting questions in google classroom as a check-in so be sure to go on there.

IMPORTANT: Please spend about 20 minutes a day on ZEARN! It will continue to build and strengthen your math skills. I will be checking ZEARN on a weekly basis to see what levels you are at. If you need your ZEARN log in, please contactme!

TRADE:If youcome up with a great activity at home that involves MATH, I would be willing to TRADE one of your daily assignments for that activity. You will have to email me and describe what exactly the activity was and HOW it relates to Math and what type of Math you did. Examples: cooking (what did you cook, what math did you use, such as measurements and fractions), building something (what did you build, what math did you use, give me specifics), some kind of math game: monopoly (involving money, what's the strategy you used, what's the object of the game). GIVE ME ALL THE DETAILS! TRADE is a fun way of replacing some of the packet work so give it a try. Packets can be turned into the grade level box at the office or you can scan/email me the pages or take a pie/text to me. Contact info above.

PLEASE take care of yourselves, learn some new things around your home, share with me what you are doing, stay in contact via google classroom (or other forms), and keep your brain engaged and always learning. (If you don't use it, you lose it. ...ha)! Miss you!

Your Own Ending for The Run

The Run was a fun story wasn't it?

It had it all, zombies, friendship, action, adventure. But then the ending was terrible. Oh, music, that solved it all. It was like they just said "Ok, that's all the time/money we have for this, so just end it and call it good" and then their writers just sort of came up with something and ended the story.

WELL THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!!

It's your job to end this thing right.

Write at least a 500 word ending to this story that does a better job than ReadWorks did. I know you can do it.

Remember, good endings show character development, a solid resolution to the challenges (both major and minor) included in the plot, and a sense of completion and validity for the reader. There should be emotions both good and bad, moments that make the reader actually care about our characters.

To get started, make yourself a mind-map. Or use the template provided.

Rough drafts can be submitted online at any time. I will help you as your work is completed. If you are using this in packet form, then you can hold on to your finished work and submit it when possible.

There is no length limit for this assignment.

Mrs. Tacheria Math Packet

Dear students and parents of 7th Graders in Mrs. Huff’s classes,

I have included a rough schedule of the topics to be covered in the next packet available for distribution from the office starting Tuesday April 14 and Wednesday April 15 from 11am to 1pm. I have shortened the amount of work required per week so that it may be more manageable.

The week of April 14 - 17 is again, review of adding and subtracting integers. This is one of the most important 7th grade standards. I also chose it for review because I will be introducing a new online resource to accompany the work. Students have two options for this week (1) complete the work on the paper packet which will be available from the office, on the school website, or on my google classroom. OR (2) complete the work online through our textbook workbook website, my.hrw.com. I will be assigning work through that platform. Students do not need to do both, it will be redundant.

The weeks of April 20 - 24 and April 27-May 1 will be slightly different and more like the previous two weeks of packets (March 30 - April 3, and April 6 - 10). This work can be found on the school website, in the paper packet form through the office, or on my google classroom. I will be posting alternative online assignments for these weeks as well on my google classroom and students need to either do the paper packet activity or the online activity, not both.

Please do NOT change your password. If you are having trouble logging in, I can get your username to you and can reset your password.

Office Hours

My plan right now is to provide office hours when students can join a zoom call with me to ask questions if they are having trouble with the work. I will be posting the zoom link on google classroom in the morning for the office hours I will be holding that day. The hours that I will be online to answer math questions are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2pm to 3pm. I may add in a Wednesday morning time as well depending on the need.

7th Grade - Schedule

April 14 - 17th - Integer Operations (Review)

  • Lesson 1 - Adding and Subtracting Integers (Sections 1.1, 1.2, 1.3) - 1 to 3 days
  • Lesson 2 - Applications of Adding and Subtracting Integers (Section 1.4) - 1 day

April 20 - 24th - Geometry of Angles (New Material)

  • Lesson 3 - Basic Angles (acute, right, obtuse, straight) and naming angles - 1 day
  • Lesson 4 - Complementary Angles - 1 day

  • Lesson 6 - Vertical Angles - 1 day
  • Lesson 7 - Triangle Angle Sum Theorem - 1 day
  • Lesson 8 - Triangle Inequality Theorem - 1 day

If a student does not have online access, they can complete the paper packet. If a student has online access, they should be checking their school email daily and logging into google classroom daily to access the materials. I will be posting videos daily that go along with the lessons.

To reiterate, either complete the work on the paper packet, or the online work, not both. If you have any questions, please email me.

Please stay safe and healthy.
