We're headin' down the home-stretch!

With just two half-days of EQAO writing left to go, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel! The boys and girls have finished their Math booklets and should prepare themselves for two days of writing about what they've read and what they know.  
Overall, there are key things that I would like everyone to review over the weekend. These items are not new to the boys and girls, but it's important to keep them front and center.  

Students should know the following by heart: 

  • the correct usage of there/their/they're
  • the correct usage of your/you're 
  • the difference between our/are
  • sentences and names must be capitalized 
  • we must remember to use punctuation at the end of all sentences 
  • make sure our sentences are not so long that the reader runs out of breath (an on-going goal in our class) 
  • how to use quotation marks correctly (search blog for this if needed) 
  • plusses and comments are a great way to add voice to ones writing and engage the reader more fully 
  • no-excuse words MUST be spelled correctly-there's no excuse for spelling words from the story/text/question incorrectly 
  • printing needs to be very neat and easy to read
  • we must color in the bubbles for the multiple choice questions fully and neatly
