  1. 24 September 2012 一 Bell Ringer Get out a sheet of paper. Today we are PAPER BOXING. Head the paper and title it “Complete+ Sentences”. Title the back of the paper “Test 1 Extra Credit”. We will start today’s lesson on the back of this page. Today we will practice writing complete+ sentences so that you can earn extra credit towards your test 1 grade.

  2. 二 Inspirational Talk About Grades Before we have this inspirational talk, we need to look at where we started on this test. On the paper I’ve handed to you, it has your grade and all the questions you missed. The most important thing for us today, however, is on the bottom. Look for SS.7.C – SS.7.C.1 Benchmark SS.7.C.1.1 or SS.7.C – SS.7.C.1 Benchmark SS.7.C.1.2 or SS.7.C – SS.7.C.1 Benchmark SS.7.C.1.3 or SS.7.C – SS.7.C.1 Benchmark SS.7.C.1.4 on your paper. For each one you have, you have an extra credit opportunity.

  6. 三 Complete+ Sentences Who is the tallest person that lives in your house? A complete+ sentence: never uses unknown pronouns (it, she, he, I) and steals almost every word from the question so that you can easily figure out what question was being asked.
