*A DAILY LOG OF WHAT WENT ON (AND WHAT WAS ASSIGNED) IN THE ENGLISH 7, CREATIVE WRITING, AND ADVANCED READING CLASSES:
(Missed worksheets are available in the classroom or under “Make-Up Assignment Archive” on this blog, and textbooks are available for check-out, if necessary, for missed textbook assignments.)
English 7: Today we got new seating charts. We switched things around in our classroom folders. We were assigned new class jobs. We reviewed the 3rd Qtr. Reader Response Form (due Mar. 10 for 100 points!). And we discussed subjects and predicates in sentences and did Exercise 1 on p. 713 in the textbook.
Adv. Reading: Today we went through the class disclosure statement (due tomorrow– signed– for 20 points), we looked at Mrs. Wood’s blog and reviewed the Qtr. 3 Reader Response Form (3 due by March 10 for 100 points each!), and we introduced ourselves to the class.
English 7: Today we read Ch. 9-14 of Crispin and wrote Summary #3 in our study guides.
Adv. Reading: We turned in disclosure statements, and we reviewed what to do in our various school drills (fire, earthquake, lockdown). Then we went to the library to hear a presentation about books from Mrs. Hall, and then we checked out books and read.
