What day is it?! (8/23/17)

WEDNESDAY, August 23rd


1) Bell-Ringer:


  1. Read through the checklist.


WHEN YOU ENTER THIS CLASSROOM:
  • You have gotten everything you need from your locker.
  • You have used the restroom.
  • You have visited the water fountain (unless you have a filled-up water bottle).
  • You are QUIET.
  • You find your seat.
  • You check the blog or look at the board to see what you need to do right away.


  1. Add my class in Google Classroom using code: pikcdnv
  1. “A writer’s notebook gives you a place to write down what makes
    you angry or sad or amazed, to write down what you noticed and
    don’t want to forget. A writer’s notebook gives you a place to live like a writer.”  --Ralph Fletcher


    Writers write about what they know. They have certain territories they write about often. They use their Writer’s Notebook to generate ideas and read over their thinking.


    -Get out your Language Arts notebook, or loose leaf
    paper (to be kept in your Language Arts folder).
    -Write down each of the four territories (areas in your
    life that you want to write about). You are welcome to
    add your own territories as well.
    -Try to come up with at least three items to place in
    each territory. These should be topics that you could
    write about at almost any time.


    My example:

    People:

    My brother__
    ________
    ________
    Places:

    Illinois_____
    ________
    ________
    Interests:
