7th Per. Homework Reminder

Your job for this weekend, my dear 8th graders, is this:

Revise the creative writing you did in class yesterday (and had returned to you today) to make your sentences flow better. You can do this in various ways that will all show evidence of what you’ve learned this year, and I encourage you to use as many as possible. However, your points on this assignment will come from being able to demonstrate in class on Tuesday at least TWO places where you COMBINED sentences using the punctuation marks we’ve learned about, a conjunction, or both. 

Your revised copy must be TYPED in a 12-point font, double-spaced, and be stapled on top of your original handwritten copy. Don’t forget to put your name in the top left corner.

I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with! Have a fun and safe long* weekend.

 

 

(* I intentionally didn’t put a comma between “safe” and “long” because “long weekend” is a compound noun; thus, the rule about two adjectives describing the same noun needing a comma is trumped.)
