We’ve been working on understanding and correctly using words that are easily confused. Pick a word from two separate word sets on your "Words to Remember" sheet (which is on my website) and use both of them in one strong, complete sentence.  For example: I might pick "than" and "a lot."  Be sure you’re using the words correctly; be sure your sentences are complete and correct.  My sentence might be: I like it a lot when I read more than a chapter from my fantastic, fiction book each night.

You each have strengths in language arts. Think about yours in the reading of “Playing the Game” and writing your summary (both parts—the drafting and the final, typed, “published” version). Where did you excel? Where would you like more review? What did you enjoy (or not) about the writing process (brainstorming, drafting, reviewing/revising, editing, publishing)?

As you’re reading “Playing the Game,” the excerpt from Walter Dean Myers’ The Game, think about how Myers tells his story and shares information to help his readers understand what Drew’s going through. Reread pp. 12-13. Pick one sentence that helps you understand who Drew is. Type the sentence and blog about what that helps you see. No more than two of the same sentence. If you're struggling, check the "Blogging Instructions" file in your class files on Ms. O'Brien's website.  Questions? Ask Ms. O'Brien via email (obriengl@pwcs.edu) or in class.

Try your hand at blogging. Be sure you use the blogger name you shared with Ms. O'Brien in class.  Blog a short bit of information about your favorite book or series. Remember: book titles have initial capital letters and are italicized (if you can make that work in this space).  Be sure your blogging name appears in the comments...this is your chance to figure out how to do this before you need to blog for a grade.  If you're struggling, check the "Blogging Instructions" file in your class files on Ms. O'Brien's website.  Questions? Ask Ms. O'Brien via email (obriengl@pwcs.edu) or in class.
