Back to School Assignments Handouts Worksheets

Here on clipboards.wordpress.com, you can find information about the assignments you missed if you’ve been absent from school. Here’s what you missed and how you can make up missing work for the first week of school:

Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013

Today we went over the classroom rules for 7th grade language arts. If you were absent today, go to the makeup work center (back of the classroom) and find the “Assignment Boxes” (there’s a poster of two life-sized stick kids holding up a sign that says “Makeup Work Center” back there). Take a copy of the classroom rules from the Tuesday box. Read the rules and sign them before you leave class today. If you have any questions about the rules in this class, please ask your questions before you leave.

Today we did a practice fire drill. Since you were absent for this, be sure and take a look at the map of the school, that’s posted near the door. The purple arrow indicates our regular exit. The yellow arrow is the exit you’d take if our regular exit is blocked during a fire drill or actual emergency.

We also started doing D.O.L. (Daily Oral Language) assignments today. You need to ask your teacher if she took grades on today’s D.O.L. assignment (meaning, she graded them and recorded scores). If she did take grades on the D.O.L. assignment, ask her for an extra copy of the D.O.L. assignment that you missed. You’ll need to take it home and finish proofreading just the sentence or sentences that we worked on today.

To help you with your D.O.L. assignments, “The English Handbook Pages” are available online. Just click on the Shakespeare icon on this page, and it will take you directly to EnglishEmporium, the website where you can find a digital copy of “The English Handbook pages”.

Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013

Today we did a D.O.L. (Daily Oral Language) assignment at the start of class. You only have to make these up if the teacher graded and recorded today’s D.O.L., so be sure and ask your teacher, “Did you take grades on the D.O.L. when I was absent?” If so, please ask her for an extra copy of the D.O.L. assignment that you missed. You’ll need to take it home and finish proofreading the sentence(s) that we did today.

To help you with your D.O.L. assignments, “The English Handbook Pages” are available online. Just click on the Shakespeare icon on this page, and it will take you directly to EnglishEmporium, the website where you can find a digital copy of “The English Handbook pages”.

We were also given a pre-test today for language arts. Set an official appointment to come in at lunch or after school (“official” means your teacher writes the appointment in her agenda), so you can make up this test.

Friday, Sept. 6

Today we did a D.O.L. (Daily Oral Language) assignment at the start of class. You only have to make these up if the teacher graded and recorded today’s D.O.L., so be sure and ask your teacher, “Did you take grades on the D.O.L. when I was absent?” If so, please ask her for an extra copy of the D.O.L. assignment that you missed.

After that, we created a flowchart for an upcoming essay assignment. The essay, itself, should explain what the word “patriotism” means to you. But for now, only create a flowchart. This is not only an assignment for school, but these essays will be submitted to the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) as entries in a contest. You must not take your essay or flowchart home, therefore, because no one is allowed to get help on this essay from parents or other family members.

Here’s an example of a Flowchart for V.F.W. Essays, just in case you’ve forgotten what a flowchart is supposed to look like.
