Monday, April 7

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.

If you were gone today, you need to copy your assignments in your agenda. If you are at home right now, use this schedule, right here on clipboards, like you would the “Agenda Guide” in the classroom, and simply copy each day’s activities into your agenda.

Remember that we have a spelling/vocabulary test coming up this Thursday. Have you been studying? You can access this week’s vocabulary list in the vocabulary section of this website.

Our narrative poems were due today. Please turn yours in as soon as possible. Make sure your name is on it. Include the pre-write, first draft, and editing steps.

We also wrote a rhyming poem today. As a pre-write for this assignment, you must create a web that shows the rhyming words you’ve included in your rhyming poem. (See the example on the board.) The poem must be six to eight lines long, and each line of the poem must rhyme with another line. It will be due on Wednesday.
