This week we are continuing the writing portion of our short stories unit.

Monday: No School. MLK Day
Tuesday: Continue to work on rough draft of story through teacher review and beginning to type final copy.
Wednesday: Grammar 
Thursday: Work on revising their story through using an organizer.  Continue typing.
Friday: Peer review and editing of short stories. Continue/ complete typing.  The final copy of the short story is due Monday. Please see the attached file for final copy requirements and the grading rubric. 

Students need to continue writing in their home writer's notebook.  As a reminder, this is a place to record thoughts, ideas, pondering, wondering, observations, etc. They need to write in it 2 times a week for 20 minutes each time, which should consist of a page. They may also type their entries, but the typed pages must be cut neatly and glued or taped into the notebook.  The next due date is Friday, March 4.  They should have 15 more entries for a total of 45 entries.
I will put all homework assignments on my calendar at the bottom of the page. Please check it daily.
