Monday the luckiest time of all

Monday: The Luckiest Time of All

  • Popcorn read The Luckiest Time of All (Pg. 60)

  • Exit slip.

    • Recall: Why do Ovella and Elzie go to the Silas Greene show?

    • Infer: What does this tell you about Elzie as a young woman?

    • Journal title: Hyperbole Writing

    • Mrs. Elzie Pickens uses hyperbole (an exaggeration for effect) to describe how impressed she was with Mr. Pickens: “right behind him was the finest fast running hero in the bottoms of Virginia.”

    • Generate a circle web of people you know well.

    • Then, write adjectives that describe them next to their names.

    • At least 4 people with at least 3 adjectives describing each person.

    • Then, write a description that includes hyperbole.

      • Example: If you’re describing someone very smart, you might write, “She knew more than all the professors at the university. She had answers to questions that hadn’t even been thought of yet.”

  • When you’re done, raise your hand. I’ll collect your exit slip, and check your hyperbole writing. Then you can start working on your book talk due October 11.

  • Let’s try putting books away one by one…

    • It’s a set of events structured to achieve an effect.

    • Significant events in a story (significant because they have important consequences).

7 th week 4 agenda 9 24 12 9 28 12

When?

When do I use a semicolon?

  • Use a semicolon when you want to form a bond between two statements that are related.

    • Ex: It was below zero on a cold winter day; Squiggly wondered if he would freeze to death.

  • Don’tuse a semicolon with coordinating conjunctions (and, or, but). Use a comma in this case.

    • Ex: It was 10 below zero on a cold winter day, andSquiggly wondered if he would freeze to death.


7 th week 4 agenda 9 24 12 9 28 12

When? Continued…

When do I use a semicolon?

  • Use it as a SUPER comma!

    • Ex: This week's book winners are Herbie in Milligan College, Tennessee; Matt in Irvine, California; and Jan in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

    • Because each item in the list requires a comma to separate the city from the state, you have to use a semicolon to separate the items themselves.
