• ELA-A (Periods 3, 4, and 5)


    Students will continue the routine of their weekly self-generative writing.

    Students will review the functions of a comma in writing.


    Estimated Time: 30 Minutes



    Students will begin keeping a journal of this unprecedented time in their lives.  They should write for 5-10 minutes each day about their experiences with social distancing.

    Students will work through the ELA-A Distance Learning Day 2 Module on their class's Canvas Page.  This is a 20 minute review of comma usage and practice.


    3 Quick Things to Know:  

    1.  Writers react to the world around them and reflect on their experiences.
    2.  Writers follow agreed upon rules in order to communicate.
    3.  Writers review their writing to reflect correct grammar usage.


    • Type a daily journal entry for today, Wednesday March 18th. You will journal every day in OneNote.  
    • Log into your No Red Ink Account and complete the assigned practice for commas.
    • Complete the reflection assignment by embedding a gif, picture, or meme that describes what you would rather be doing than social distancing.  If you have trouble uploading a picture, then simply write what you would rather be doing.

    o Estimated Time: 30 minutes

    o Explanation of Activity/Assignment

    • Sustained reading engagement 

    o Quick things to know

    • I can monitor my comprehension of the story as I read.
    • I can identify main characters, inciting incident, and key conflicts.


    o Tasks

    • Find a quiet place in your house (don't take your cell phone or laptop with you), and read for 30 minutes.  Allow yourself to become immersed in the world of the characters; find your reading stride.   
    • If you like to use post-it notes to record a few (not 20 or 30 but 2 or 3) observations, feel free to do so.  However, this reading should be enjoyable and stress free. 
    • When you're done, update your reading log found on OneNote under the tab "Distance Learning" in your content library. Your teacher will check this log 3x a week. 

    o Links/Activities
