It’s possible that your teacher took grades on the D.O.L. today. Please ask her if she did. If so, you need to get a D.O.L. make-up sheet from your teacher.

We were given a new vocabulary list today. As always, the definitions are found under “Vocabulary Lists” in the top menu. The spelling test over this list will be given on Friday, December 13. Don’t wait until the last minute to start studying!

Today we revised our full page of dialogue. If you were absent, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Ask your teacher to give you back your page of dialogue
  2. Take home that edited page as homework
  3. Revise it at home, making sure you’ve used at least four of this week’s “said” vocabulary words on your revised page
  4. Turn in the revised page for a grade
