7th Grade My Perspectives Assignments; May 11-15

May 10, 2020     Pat Carpenter    


Complete questions 10-13 of your test on The Circuit.   Due Tuesday. Be sure you have turned in your corrections to questions 1-9.


Complete questions 14-20.  Due Wednesday. Corrections to 10-13 should have been turned in.


Be sure your corrections to 14-20 have been turned in.  

For the remainder of the school year you will be reviewing some of the concepts you have studied this year.  So for today:

Read Psalm 19: 1-4.  What literary technique is being used?  (Examples:  hyperbole, personification, onomatopoeia, simile, metaphor, etc.  For help go to your Literary Terms Handbook on pages R44-R49 of your Glossary.)


Go outside and take a look at the world around you.  Write a short paragraph using imagery to describe what you see so that in my mind I can see it, too.  (A short paragraph should contain 3-5 sentences.  Try to use descriptive words that are not overused.) I expect you to use good grammar.  Please check your picture before you send it.  Some of you use a pencil lead that is so light that I have trouble figuring out your answers.  If you cannot see your writing clearly then neither can I.  I will have to ask you to rewrite your paragraph so that I can see what you have written.  Thanks.


Read Psalm 18: 1-2.  What literary technique is being used in these verses? (Examples:  hyperbole, personification, onomatopoeia, simile, metaphor)

About Pat Carpenter

My credentials: B.S. in Elementary Education (grades 1-9); Masters in Education; 45 hours of additional graduate work. After 36 years in the classroom, I retired from public schools with Career Ladder III certification and rated as highly qualified to teach middle school science and language arts. I started teaching a TOCS in the fall of 2011. Family: My husband, George, and I exchanged wedding vows in 1972. We have two daughters--Anne and Aimee. Anne works in Nashville for the Health Department and Aimee is a registered nurse at Johnson City Medical Center. My faith: I was raised in church. I accepted Christ as my Savior as a child. The older I get, the more I realize that I can do nothing without Christ, but I can do all He wants me to do in His strength. With every word and deed, I am accountable to Christ. I take the education of each child very seriously. I teach whole heartedly as unto Christ. It is the Lord Christ I serve. Interests: Outside of the classroom I like to hike. I love looking at God's creation as I hike on a trail and just praising Him for His creation. My favorite form of praise is singing. I am active in my church choir and sing occasional solos, which allows me to share a part of my testimony with others.
