Short Week

Our short week is a regular Monday, then two "A" days. We will be covering a subject many of you have asked about - how to tell when to use a comma in a 'long' sentence. This has to do with clauses and conjunctions. Continue working with Membean. This week - another 45 minutes by Friday. Remember, only 15 minutes at a time. Begin planning for your comic strip by creating a plot structure chart for your book.

Monday: Phrases, clauses and fragments
Tuesday: Subordinating vs. coordinating conjunctions, using a comma or semi-colon
Wednesday: Intro to compound vs. complex sentences, run-ons, comma-splices

NOTE: Your HAND-WRITTEN journal entry (10 sentences, minimum) is due Wednesday by the end of the day.

Thursday and Friday - Parent - Teacher Conferences and dress rehearsals.

Don't forget to turn back your clock for Daylight Savings Time! Longer days of sunlight! HOORAY!!!
