It’s best to put your facts in bulleted or outline form.

DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES:
Monday, May 18: Today we went to the computer lab and shared our stories (using Google docs) with at least five other students. Then we read our friends’ stories and left up to fifteen comments on our friends’ stories. More comments means you liked that story more. We also sent an e-mail to our teacher, offering advice for next year’s Freshmen. This e-mail will be used for grammar review, so please take your time and do a nice job.
Tuesday, May 19 through Thursday, May 21: We were given ten points per day for silently reading a book: either The Alchemist or Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. If you were gone only one or two of these days, you were excused. However, if you were gone all week, please come in at lunch or after school (by appointment) to make up the reading time, or read at home, having your parent sign your agenda saying that you did so.
