On October 11, 2010 (the day after my birthday) there was no music playing for the third day in a row. KJ, Jake and jack were all late again. Mrs. Smith told us to pull out our assignment notebook and write down our homework which was just do all your make up work like PLNs and use the vocab word philanthropist on PLN9 and Philosopher in PLN11. Get caught up on GE entries 1-7. Also smith wants all of us (except Connor because he got an A) to come in and see her to re-do our short story essay. She wants us to write a letter to our parents about parent teacher conferences and print it out and turn it in to her. The letter consists of look at participation, growth in writing, and comprehension. She wants us to tell where we want to be at the end of the semester, how we are going to get there and what can she do to help us achieve our goal. She gave us all about 15-20 minutes to complete the letter. After the letter we pulled out our copies of “Into The Wild” and we read part of chapter 11 and the homework was to read the rest of the chapter. Then all of a sudden the bell rang and we finally got out of our first class on a fall Monday morning.
