What “day” is it in this class?

Go over homework. I will be talking about the next Show not Tell on Thursday and Friday, when I go over the “Messy Room” essays. I wouldn’t start the new one until I talk about it.

This afternoon: Send me a pic of your KBARR Chart from last week! (9/14-9/18). Come here live if you have any zeros in Aeries.


“Sentence Combining, 9/22 (9/23).” — Combine each group of short, choppy sentences into one smooth-sounding sentence. You may add, subtract, or change words, but make sure to keep the meaning of all the parts.  You will have to punctuate as appropriate. (Bonus: Write more than one combination!)
1.  Chuckie bounces wildly in his desk.    He is the class clown.    He clucks like a chicken.

2. His fingers make sounds.   The sounds are scratching.   They claw the desktop.    The desktop is battered.

3.  Then a voice freezes his behavior.    The voice is stern.    The behavior is disturbing.  (Hint: stern and disturbing are just adjectives.)

Go over Test #2. The Outsiders section was a problem! USE THE BOOK!
