Any time you’ve been gone, you need to ask Mrs. Webmaster if she took grades on the D.O.L. assignments. If so, go get a D.O.L. make-up sheet from the make-up work center, take it home, follow the directions, and turn it in. Remember that Mrs. Webmaster’s hand is her in-box; NEVER leave make-up work on her desk.

Monday, Jan. 21:

  • Please take the time to write assignments in your agenda. You’ll notice we will be given new vocabulary words this week. You can find the definitions on the “Vocabulary Lists” page, right here on ClipBoards. Extra vocabulary sheets are in the Monday box.
  • We finished our thesis statement graphic organizers today. Everyone needs to have a finished thesis in order to write an outline (which starts tomorrow).
  • We also finished up our research today. Everyone needs to have at least one factual sentence on each of the three careers they’ll be writing about. (See the back of the vocabulary list for a graphic organizer on this.) One or two of your factual sentences can come from idahocis.org; one or two can come from an encyclopedia and/or text book.

Tuesday, Jan. 22:

  • We defined five of our vocabulary words today. You can find the definitions on the “Vocabulary Lists” page, right here on ClipBoards.
  • We also started our outlines together as a class. If you need help catching up on outlines, please set an appointment to come in at lunch or after school. Sample outlines can be found in the Tuesday box, at the back of the classroom.

Wednesday, Jan. 23: Today we copied our second quarter vocabulary words into our parts of speech folders. (That’s a folder you keep in your colored file folder; it has a construction paper cover.) You’ll need to make up the time you lost on this assignment, so set an official appointment to come in at lunch or after school to get your words copied as well.

Thursday, Jan. 24:

  • We defined five more vocabulary words today. You can find the definitions on the “Vocabulary Lists” page, right here on ClipBoards.
  • We also continued writing our outlines together as a class. If you need help catching up on outlines, please set an appointment to come in at lunch or after school. Sample outlines can be found in the Tuesday box, at the back of the classroom.

Friday, Jan. 25:

  • We finished defining our vocabulary words today. You can find the definitions on the “Vocabulary Lists” page, right here on ClipBoards.
  • We also finished our outlines today. Then we used the outline to guide us as we began writing the first draft of our careers essays. If you need help catching up on outlines and/or essays, please set an appointment to come in at lunch or after school. Sample outlines can be found in the Tuesday box, at the back of the classroom.
