Of Mice and Men - Meme

Today, as review in English 11 we made memes that pertained to the recently finished novel, Of Mice and Men. Our final is tomorrow and I was looking for a fun new way to review. This is what we came up with:

Successful Baby
Getting a new ranch. Gets to tend the rabbits.
Hands get chopped off. $250 reward.
I keep my mouth shut. We get the job.
Get into trouble. Remember where to go.
Grabs dress. Gets away.
Need some money for a farm. Sugerdaddy Candy to the rescue.
George made me throw out mouse. Find it in the brush.
Answer Lennie’s questions. Got the job.
Fought Curley. Crushed his hand.
Splashed Water. Made Ripples.
Talked to giant rabbit. Feels better.
Condescending Wonka
So you like petting things… Why do they always die?
So you think you’re tough? Show me how soft your hands are.
So you lost your wife? Tell me she’s not a tart.
Oh you play Solitaire? Please tell me how many times you win.
So you think you’re tough? Tell me how your crushed hand feels.
So you have a German hand gun? Tell me how many wars you’ve been in.
So you breed dogs? Tell me how many puppies you drown.
Oh you are married to Curley? How many others guys do you love?

One does not simply…
Touch the dress
Pet soft things
Find their wife
Arrive on a Friday
Eat beans without ketchup
Talk to a huge rabbit
Tend the rabbits after killing a puppy
Hide a mouse in their pocket

The end is near!

This week will be busy but delightful at the same time. All classes are finishing up final projects, novels or speeches. I love this time of year because students often don't realize how much they learn!

English 11 will be finishing Of Mice and Men and taking a final test. They will also be making their final post on their blogs!

Speech will be starting in the computer lab and finishing in the classroom as they begin the toughest speech, The Persuasive Speech. I sent home requirements for this speech on Friday and will continue to go over them this week.

Keep pushing folks- the last few steps are the hardest!

Manic Monday

Today I,  along with all the Language Arts Department, will be having a professional work day. We are cleaning and updating our curriculum for each class, as well as preparing ways to use the iPads in our classrooms next year. This means my classes will be having a substitute teacher.

I am a solid believer of showing any adult that steps into the role of leader with respect, therefor I expect all my classes to not only behave but to be respectful.

English 11 - Both classes will be in the the computer lab (B-06) doing a peer edit on their completed research paper projects. The directions and worksheets are on each English Classes respective blog. Good Luck - you never know when I will stop in :)
Speech - We have seven more Demonstration Speeches to complete on Monday. I will be stopping back in the class to get things rolling but will be taping the speeches to grade later.

Today the Surgeon General also made an announcement about a disease that is sweeping the nation one high school at a time.  This disease is affecting several teens and should be regarded as serious. Please take precautions. One article defined the new disease as such:

a disease that is rapidly spread among students the last few weeks of school before summer break. symptoms include extreme laziness, back-talking to teachers, sudden lack of effort and concern about grades, and falling asleep in classes.
