Good Scribations

HI PERIOD 5! As I am sure you all noticed, we only had a 23 minute class today, but boy was it fun! Today, Wednesday April 25, started out the same way as every class. First we were chastised by Smith because we didn't greet her with enough enthusiasm (although I would like to say that I strive to say "Hello Ms. Smith!" with enough "umph" the first time). However, we took her scolding to heart and did a better job the second time (way to go period 5). Next, we talked about our homework. Homework this evening includes the following: take home essay, finishing the survey, and grammar packets (for those of you who are wondering, you do have to finish the conversation between Laura and Gabe). So, let us consider this wonderful take home essay, which is a TEST (not to freak anyone out, but let's try our best shall we?) The question: 1984 is a warning that Orwell wrote in the 1940's. What was he warning us about? (2 specifics with explanations). How has it come true in our society today? (2 specifics with explanations. Now, we are going to review proper paper turn in etiquette. #1 Type your paper. #2 Double Space you paper. #3 Prior to numbers 1 & 2 make sure you write your essay in a formal essay format. #4 Print before you come to class. Smith said that your paper can be 3, 5, 7, 12, or 22 paragraphs if you like but remember it is formal writing so you decide. After we covered the paper, Smith talked for awhile about PB and J taking over the world and that preservatives are bad so everyone remember to eat natural Peanut Butter and throw out your Jiff and Peter Pan. Moving on to the survey, if you were not present in class today, go to Smith's web page (your favorite teacher) under teacher web pages and click on survey. Our class code is 2:51. This survey is from Smith's 21st Century Learner's group, so complete sentences are important. If you didn't finish your survey in class, you were suppose to submit what you had and finish later. Now, keep in mind, Smith worked to make this survey understandable to us so be nice and do you best. That way, we can all be a happy family and enjoy our days at Camp Smith. So, that is pretty much it, except that if you were not at school, your fruit basket is in the mail. Oh, and you missed out on a story about Smith when she needed glasses and had to squint to see. And her eyes felt buggy. So...I guess this is goodbye period 5. Have a splendid Wednesday evening and a fantastic Thursday morning. Oh bye the way, I couldn't get the enter key to work so when there is suppose to be a new paragraph I pushed the space bar until it was on a new line. Clearly I am very technologically gifted and I know how to work the enter key on a machine I am supposedly smarter than. And if you are wondering, the title of this scribe was inspired by The Beach Boys. Happy writing! -Hannah-banana

Well, it looks like my spacebar method didn't work out. Woops...

Nope, but good scribe anyway! I think I will write a book about PB&J taking over the world. Fantastic! Anyway, great job Hannah!
