Each day, you will: ▪Read the day’s sentence together as a class. ▪Find FIVE errors independently using proofreading marks. ▪Check your work when a classmate comes to the board to make corrections. ▪Discuss the corrections as a class. ▪Rewrite the sentence correctly, reflecting the changes you made with proofreading marks. ▪Determine how many errors you missed.
How Will I Be Graded? ▪At the end of the week, your Sentence Starters work will be collected. Only ONE sentence will be graded officially. However, you don’t know which one I will grade, so you need to make sure ALL sentences are correct! ▪At the beginning of the next week, you will listen to and copy a sentence that incorporates the focus skills from the previous week. Think of this as a “Quick Quiz.” This will let me know if you understand the skills we worked on before we continue to the next section!
Some Friendly Competition! ▪Each week’s handout is worth 10 points. You will earn a lottery ticket for a 10/10. ▪At the end of the quarter, we will hold a lottery drawing for FABULOUS PRIZES—a brand new car, a trip to Hawaii (okay, not really—but I do give away some pretty cool goodie bags…) ▪We will also keep track of each class’s 10/10s and compete for a class prize at the end of the quarter. Can your class get better scores than the others each week? WE SHALL SEE!
Daily Edit Sentence Starters Tests ▪After every three weeks, you will take a written Daily Edit Sentence Starters test. ▪The test is composed of SIX sentences, two from each week. ▪You will find five errors in each sentence, use proofreading marks to make corrections, and then write the corrected sentence on the lines. ▪Each sentence is worth five points (a point for each error) so the test is worth 25 POINTS.
