writing contest with a patriotic theme

It’s possible that Mrs. Sparhawk took grades on the D.O.L. today. Please ask her if she did, and if so, you need to go to a box in the make-up work center that says “extra D.O.L.” and get a worksheet from this box. You can take this worksheet home and do it as homework, but don’t forget to turn it in when you return to school tomorrow.

Mrs. Sparhawk gave everyone five more definitions for their Patriotic Vocabulary List 21E.  Do you need to see those definitions? Just try clicking on the “Vocabulary” link at the top of this page!

After that, we continued to write the first draft of our Patriot’s Pen essays today. If you were absent today and would like more time to work on your first draft, please set an official appointment to come in at lunch or after school to work on your first draft. You may not take your first draft home, as that would disqualify you from winning the contest. (Parents can’t help us with the essays at all…) We need to try to have our first drafts finished by Thursday this week.
