I hope you all had a great weekend and you're geared up for another awesome week at school! :)
Here is your homework for this week. By the way, I really did have a student tell me once that a dog ate his homework. Funny thing is, I kind of believed him!
If you have any questions about your homework please let me know. :)
There are three aspects to your homework for this week (make sure you read to the bottom of the page):
Mathletics - you must complete 1500 points. Well done to everyone on completing this aspect of your homework last week. This was very pleasing to see!
Writing - Prepare a plan for the persuasive writing prompt below. You must use the planning template I provided in class. If you have misplaced it there is an electronic copy here which you can print (or ask me to print again for you).
Persuasive Writing prompt:
Writing - In order to consolidate all the work we have done on our Introductions and Conclusions I will get you to write an Introduction AND conclusion for the following prompt:
"Reading books is better than watching TV"
You do not need to write a plan, or a full piece of persuasive writing. All you need to write is an Introduction AND a conclusion. Considering how similar Introductions and Conclusions are this should be quite manageable.Remember to use the reference materials available on the blog to help you out with all aspects of your writing homework this week! I will be paying a close eye on the structure of your writing.
Good luck and if you have any questions please just let me know :)
