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:
- Writers react to the world around them and reflect on their experiences.
- Writers follow agreed upon rules in order to communicate.
- 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

- 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.
- 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.
You'll need to access the READING LOG found on OneNote under the "Distance Learning" tab for ELA-B.
