THE PILGRIM’S PROGRESS–our progress:

4/24/17

Continue reading this week. If you do not complete the entire book, do not worry. We still have a couple of weeks remaining. I will not be in class this Friday. We may have a worksheet / quiz to complete in class. So, review your notes, and try to have read at least 3/4 of this book by then. Have a blessed week!

7th/8th Grade Literature: Week One of The Pilgrim’s Progress

4/3/17

Even though we have not officially completed each and every note of our study of This Was John Calvin, this week’s lecture will end that study, and we will transition into our final book of the year, The Pilgrim’s Progress. Therefore, if you have not completed TWJC, it’s well worth the time. Do so this week. Our official assignment, however, for this week is to read at least through the Introduction and the Author’s Apology at the beginning of The First Part. Have a blessed week!

7th-8th Grade Literature: This Was John Calvin

3/27/17

HOW I enjoyed seeing each of you who were at the feast Friday, all dressed up in your festive costumes!! Well done to each of you who dressed up and worked hard on foods, presentations and booths!

Please continue reading our current bio of John Calvin. You also need to review our class notes and bring those notes with you for a possible pop quiz in class. You will be able to use your own notes and book, but you may not share with anyone else, due to testing security. So, bring your book and your notes to class, along with additional paper and writing utensils to take some more notes this week. :-) Have a blessed week!!
Mrs. Rockie

Week Two: This Was John Calvin

3/20/17

Complete reading Part I and begin reading Part II of this book. Review your notes from our last class meeting, and BRING these notes with you to class this week. We will take more notes, which you’ll want to put with the ones from our last class meeting. Keep your notes diligently so that you can be properly prepared for any pop quiz which might arise from them by next week. (Not this week, due to preparations for our banquet! :D ) If you have to miss our class lecture, please get notes from a responsible friend in class. You will need these for our upcoming exam on this book.

THIS WAS JOHN CALVIN Assignment for Week One: Due Friday, March 10

3/5/17

We begin our study of THIS WAS JOHN CALVIN this week!! I hope you will soon be just as thrilled about this event as I am! I feel that you will enjoy reading this book very much for a variety of reasons which will be discussed at our class meeting. For this week, please read the preface and Part I: “God So Led Me.”

Have a very blessed week, and enjoy!

7th & 8th Literature Assignment for week of Feb. 20th

2/20/17

Continue reading Henry V. Remember that we only have two weeks left on this play. Therefore, take whatever you have yet to read of Henry V and divide it by two. Try to read at least the first half of what you have left to read this week, leaving only the last portion of your reading to be tackled next week. Additionally, if you have not already purchased our next book, This Was John Calvin, please do so at this time so that you will have time for it to arrive prior to the beginning of our study in a couple of weeks. Have a very blessed week! Happy President’s Day!! :D

Please complete the last assignment’s work on Henry V prior to working on this. AFTER you’ve completed the other Henry V assignment, you will need to read at least through Act I. You may begin Act II; however, we will probably only complete Act I in this week’s class meeting.
Have a blessed week,
