Prepositions for everyone…

Standard

This post is REALLY for today, September 13, 2012. It is good to be back on track again and the agenda proves it.

Prepositions were the words of the day, with notes, discussion, and even a little bee that showed where he had been. Magazines were used in their groups to find prepositional phrases and how they are used everyday. It’s funny, when you look for them, they really are used in everyday writing.

Here are some resources to help you with your Preposition proficiency (if needed):

Credibility concerning websites was also discussed. This is covered in our writing standards and it will be knowledge that can be used throughout the rest of the students’ educational career. Who knew we needed to be so careful when finding information online???

Tomorrow should be a fun day. We will be having group discussions, following the rules of course, listening to Mr. Huff read our final piece of 9/11 information, and beginning the new Literary Response. FULL day = FUN day!

Here are the Thoughts For the Day:

Holly Witten –

I love changing up my hairstyles.  Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t know how to do different hairstyles.  One of my favorite hairstyles is a simple french braid.This style is very easy.  Just follow these steps.

1. Brush the hair to remove all the knots.

2. Gather the hair at the top of the head and divide it into three sections.

3. To begin the braid, cross the right section over the middle section. Then repeat this move with the left section.

4. Before repeating your cross-over motion with the right hand, gather a little bit more hair from the right side of the head, and add it to the section.  Then cross this portion of the hair over the middle section.

5. Gather the left section of hair and cross it over the middle.

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you have gathered all the additional strands. Finish at the bottom with a regular braid.

7. Once you have finished this, tie the end of the hair with a hair band, wrapping it tightly around the hair.

Everyone has such great blog ideas, I can’t wait to feature all of them.
