Students!  Please read these posts all the way through– always, but especially when I can’t be in class with you.  In keeping with today’s theme, which is lists, please read the list below of things to do today, and then do all of them!

i-love-lists

  1. Take your phone out. (For five minutes! If it’s ok with the teacher! Read below for instructions!)
  2. Look through the packet of Lists from McSweeney’s and read them by yourself, with a partner, or as a whole group.
  3. Choose four lists and respond to the questions on the double sided, two-page organizer.
  4. Turn in your packets.
  5. Do your homework. (Read below for instructions!)

Phone:

Check with the substitute teacher first to make sure it’s ok, and if s/he says yes, please take your phones out to leave a comment on yesterday’s post with a link to an Open Letter that you like from this collection.  (Don’t forget- red words are hyperlinked, so you can click on “yesterday’s post” to get there.)  That was your homework last night.  This means you should have your phone out for no more than five minutes— again, as long as the teacher says it’s ok.  Make sure you do that again at the end of class for tonight’s homework.

The packets of Lists from McSweeney’s should be on Mr. Woodward’s desk; I left them there on Wednesday.  Read them by yourself, with a  partner, or as a whole group.  Remember, you can find all of the pieces we read on the Pinterest board:

Write:

Choose four lists and respond to the questions on the double sided, two-page organizer.

Homework:

Check out other Lists on the McSweeney’s site and choose one you like, and then paste the link into a comment on today’s post.
