8th Grade English:

I let the students go to the old gym and play around for about 30 minutes. Today was their last incentive day.

7th Grade Reading:

Students finished Drawing Conclusions 1-5 on Moodle. I had several students gone this afternoon.

**Students seem to be having difficulties getting their bellworks done in a timely fashion so I plan on changing up a few things come Monday. Hopefully this will solve my problem.

**Today was also the deadline to get me any missing assignment grades. I gave all students a day in class to complete their missing work and if it wasn’t done they had to finish it on their own time. The time frame of the missing assignments 2/1/09 to present. The students were aware of the deadline. I believe I gave the students enough warning and time for this make-up work and do not plan on taking any grades on the missing work for this time frame. It is the student’s responsibility to make up any missing work when they are gone.
