1. Warming up: Celebrating the wonder that is Annabelle!
From Mrs. Lombardi: Annabelle is a quiet, kind- hearted soul who is an excellent Spanish student. I can always count on her to give me the right answer but she is never boastful or arrogant about knowing it. Seeing her smile in the morning makes my whole day and I am so happy to be her teacher.
From Mrs. Firchau: Annabelle always has a smile on her face which brightens my day. She is very kind and always willing to help out other students.
From Ms. Levi: I don't think I have really ever seen Annabelle without a smile on her face (even first thing in the morning!). Plus, she has a great sense of humor!
From Mr. Lienemann: As a student, Annabelle exemplifies a positive attitude and demonstrates academic initiative. She is responsible, honest, and extremely dedicated to her school and education. Annabelle is a bright young woman with an outstanding attitude towards studies, work and people in general. Her pleasant personality and poised manner make her an enjoyable student.
From Mrs. Little: Annabelle is a very conscientious student.
I accidentally placed her in the AP Psych class which was supposed to be
for seniors only. She, however, has kept up with the work and has contributed
to our class. Her attitude is very positive and her hard work and intelligence
has been reflected by her good grades in the class.
From her mama:
Our Daughter Annabelle is the definition of “LOVE”!
A JOY AND A JOY TO BE AROUND… (sometimes)
A BREATH OF FRESH AIR, and
LOYAL, and a
PAIN IN THE REAR… (sometimes)
She is a SISTER to 2 BROTHERS
She is a TEDDY BEAR and a GRIZZLY BEAR, she is…
TRUE FRIEND, and she is…
We love her dearly!
2. Practicing your timed writing: Poem comparison (don't panic)
1. Sleep in tomorrow.
2. Read your critical review book (and bring it to class on Friday).
3. Read through Chapter 16 for Thursday (this is a large chunk of reading designed to be spread out over the next several days; please don't save it for Wednesday night). As you read, keep a Google doc where you simply type favorite/intriguing/seemingly important words and phrases from these chapters. You'll want at least ten, but the more, the better.
