DAILY LANGUAGE REVIEW: Ask your teacher if she took grades on the DLR and find out from a classmate which one(s) you missed. If you were absent when your teacher took grades on the DLR, find a copy of the one you missed in the make-up work center. Take it home and edit and/or revise it as needed. Before you turn it in to the teacher, please draw a box around the one you missed with a highlighter pen, and tell your teacher “I still need a grade for this.” (Otherwise it may get lost in the stacks of other DLR assignments.)

DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, Feb. 22: Today we learned that a “character sketch” isn’t a drawing of your character, but a description of your character. It should include details like how old your character is, what their racial or ethnic background is, perhaps some family history, their height, physical appearance, and details like that.

Tuesday, Feb. 23: Today we turned in our journals. If you need to turn yours in, please make sure it’s all caught up, and your name is written in BIG letters at the end of the final entry. Then give it to your teacher.
