Finalizing Drafts

Announcements: Thanks for the card!

Thank Goodness It’s Grammar: Students started class by completing the 5-26 TGIG.

Activity: Students typed and saved final drafts of argumentative pieces. I suggested that students save pieces on both the O: and Q: drive.

At each station, students earned participation points and at independent reading students got a grade for the Read 180 Independent Reading Log.
