DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, March 9: Do you see the image at the top of this page? Today we filled out four character sketches using these images to inspire us. You need to write that character sketch Q & A box in your spiral notebook journal four times and fill out each one on a different character. Use the characters pictured in this video, please. Once you finish your character sketches, please turn them in to your teacher with your MLA heading at the top of the page.

Tuesday, March 10: Please write one full page of dialogue between two of the characters pictured in this video. (If you were here yesterday, just make a dialogue between any of the characters you invented yesterday. You won’t have to use this dialogue in your actual story; this is more of a pre-test, to see if you understand how dialogue should look when written. Please turn it in to your teacher for a grade.

Wednesday, March 11: Today we began writing our stories, using the laptops. If you’re at home, and you happen to have a Gmail account, this should be easy. Just create a Google doc. (That way you can also access it from school.) If you need help creating a Google account, please talk to your teacher. Once you’ve typed at least one full page of your story, please share it with your teacher via Google docs’ “Share” button. That way your teacher can give you credit for today’s work.

Thursday, March 12: Today we continued writing our stories, using the laptops. If you’re at home, and you happen to have a Gmail account, this should be easy. Just create a Google doc.
