Monday, April 14

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.

Because of standardized testing, we will not be given a new vocabulary list until next week.

We were also given time in class to start writing an alliterative poem. (See last week’s vocabulary list for a definition of alliteration.) To pre-write for this poem, you may either make an alliterative web, or you may use a noun-list chart.

We started writing a poem that uses similes. If you don’t remember what a simile is, please refer to last week’s vocabulary list.

If you need help writing your poems, please visit the “Assignments” page in the top menu bar. It shows which poems have been assigned and what the requirements are for each one. Remember that you must show your work by doing a pre-write page before you write the poem.
