Learn more about Thanksgiving: What happened at the first Thanksgiving? Some historians think that “The First Thanksgiving” wasn’t really a thanksgiving. They call it “The 1621 Harvest Celebration” because it was more like a harvest festival. At the Plimoth Plantation Web site, students will discover clues about what really happened at the 1621 harvest celebration.

Week 5 Activities:

No School Monday, Nov. 10!

This week we'll work on the "Speaking with the Stars" project by practicing the scripts with teams and getting feedback on speaking (pronunciation, stress, intonation, etc.). We will also finish up the EL Civics Oral Report PowerPoint presentations for the EL Civics Assessment Task 2. Then we'll start working on the next project, "My Characteristic and Emotions," a PowerPoint presentation based on the grammar we will study for the week.

For grammar this week, we will begin to study participial adjectives (-ing and -ed describing words and their differences, such as relaxed v. relaxing). This is the PowerPoint presentation we used in class:
