As the 3rd period class walked into mod 2, there was chatter about state wrestling. We opened up our writer’s notebook and started writing about what ever we wanted. If you would have walked into the mod at that point you would have seen many students working hard. Then you would have heard classical music and pencils scratching on paper. Afterwards, we shared what we wrote about. There were writings of made up stories, weekend plans, random parts of speech, dreams, and past writings.
Then, we worked on Daily Grammar Practice of DGP. This week’s sentence was “There was no other like it in any of the stores, and she had turned all of them inside out.” Today we diagramed the sentence on two base lines that were connected together with a conjunction. Next we handed the DGP sheet in and passed our writer’s notebooks down to the end of the table for Mrs. Nordby to pick up.
Next, we handed in our “Why I Want to go to College” essays. Before you hand your essay in make sure that your writing is in 14pt. font, double space, and in Times New Roman text style. Then we printed out the essays and stapled them to our green sheet. Once you have done this, post it on your blog.
For the rest of the period, we got to play the game “Grammar Pop” on the iPads. Then the bell then rang signaling us to leave the mod.
