DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, April 6: Today we were given a handout called “Journal Practice Page” (extra copies are in the make-up work center), which helped us practice how to use the English Handbook Pages with our daily journals. The teacher also handed out our mid-term tests. If you’re unhappy with your overall grade for the mid-term test, please get a copy of the re-test. It’s almost identical to the original test, but you can take it home and work on it. The key to passing is this: use the English Handbook Pages or EnglishEmporium.WordPress.com to guide you as you answer the questions. Don’t GUESS! The mid-term re-do test must be turned in by Thursday, April 9, to be counted for full credit.

Tuesday, April 7: Today was a review day for all stories. As we go through the process of editing our typed stories, we’re practicing skills that will be useful for the final exam. If you need any extra practice or guidance (for example, if you were absent today), please set an official appointment to come in at lunch or after school.

Wednesday, April 8: Today we started scoring our peers’ papers (but we didn’t do any editing at all). Scoring will help you memorize the six traits of good writing and what each one entails, so if you were absent today, take the time to study and memorize the handout your teacher gave called, “Six Traits Scoring Guide.”

Thursday, April 9: Anyone who didn’t pass the mid-term (or who just wants a higher score for the mid-term) turned in their mid-term re-do test today. However, if you were absent today, you may turn yours in Monday for full credit. However you need to mention to your teacher that you were absent on Thursday.
