“Don’t you think it’s rather nice to think that we’re in a book that God’s writing? If I were writing the book, I might make mistakes. But God knows how to make the story end just right – in the way that’s best for us.”

~E. Nesbit, The Railway Children

Homework: The 6th graders are continuing The Railway Children, by E. Nesbit. Through weekly multiple choice quizzes, students are assessed on both reading comprehension and vocabulary.

What are Chapter Notes?

Students should be taking notes about the characters and events throughout the story. We are trying  an adaptation of Cornell notes as a new method for note taking. The purpose of these chapter notes is to develop critical thinking skills and help students organize the events of the story. Students will be allowed to use these notes on their weekly quizzes and notes will be submitted with quizzes for grading. See below for the note-taking template.

Checklist for Chapter Notes:

  • Vocabulary terms and definitions
  • Introduction of new characters
  • Major events or changes in the story
  • Page numbers

Upcoming Quiz Dates: 

Tuesday, May 9 – Chapters 9 and 10

  • Vocab: 
    • anticipate
    • charity
    • perambulator
    • hasty
    • mignonette
    • nasturtium
    • quarrel
    • drivel

Note Taking Template

Grammar: We have spent a lot of time with our grammar books in the last few weeks studying types of nouns and pronouns as well as diagramming sentences. Students should expect to focus on verbs and adjectives for the remainder of the school year. We will continue diagramming sentences as well.
