If you’re an English teacher looking for free handouts(including my snowflake-shaped poem assignment, rhyme table, and other teacher tools, I recommend visiting EnglishEmporium, which offers free graphic organizers,lesson ideas, vocabulary lists and more, in weekly blog posts).
Please note that next week is a super-short week, so our spelling/vocabulary test will be given on Friday, November 30.
Some students may have finished the final draft of their snowflake poem in class today. Everyone was given a Snowflake Shape Page, which will be homework for the weekend if they didn’t finish their poem in class. Here’s what’s due on Tuesday, November 20, 2012:
- Rhyme Table 2
- A first draft of the poem
- At least five proofreading symbols (to show that the poem was edited)
- A final draft of the poem, revised onto a snowflake shape
It’s possible that Mrs. Webmaster took grades on the D.O.L. today. Please ask her if she did. If so, you need to get one from a box in the make-up work center that says “extra D.O.L.” You can take this home and do it as homework, but don’t forget to turn it in when you return to school tomorrow. If you’re reading this at home, you can download and print a D.O.L. from the Assignments page, as long as you haven’t already done those D.O.L. sentences.
