Homework 6 and 7

6th grade homework is to write the beginning of a story about a food fight.  It must be at least 5 sentences long, and it should set the stage for a good story -- characters, setting, conflict, et cetera.  In addition, the story beginning must include at least one example of alliteration and one example of onomatopoeia.


7th graders in the third block only (tomorrow this will be block one homework) have a constructed response paragraph to write about Beowulf.  They will begin with the following quotation from the story, and then prove  the quotation's truth (three parts) through details and examples:

          "They gave thanks for Beowulf.  Once he set his mind, he never backed down. Steadfast, right-hearted, to the end."
