  • You will be given a prompt to write about.
  • I expect at least three complete sentences for 15 points.
  • You will also be given a word to define from the Sporting Words in the story we are reading.
  • Find the word by looking at the page it is referenced-to and write out the definition for me.
  • This is worth 10 points. Each day you have the potential of 25 points to gain or lose from this activity.
  • If you miss a day this PowerPoint is available on my web site at School Rack.
  • I expect the make-up for the Daily Journals turned in by the Friday of the week it was missed. If you miss Friday I expect it by the next Monday.
    • Exceptions to this will be done on a case by case basis with no guarantees from me that they will be granted.
    • If you are a persistent truant I reserve the right to revoke you ability to make this work up at all.
