Happy Halloween! Today is the day for Essay 3 submission. If you're reading this blog because you were absent today, then I know you'll send me the completed essay via email by the time your class usually meets. You'll also bring me a hard copy of the paper when you return to class.
Besides submitting the paper and chatting about what we learned during the process, students had a little Halloween fun today. We got creative by practicing logical progression of flow with a scary story. I gave students the first sentence and then the last sentence. They had to write eight sentences in between that smoothly got the reader from Point A to Point B. There were read alouds and prizes. Sure hate you missed it, but at least this activity is not something you need to make up.
