Homework Day 1
Read the following five prompts.
Rewrite each prompt in your own words. So this means there are 5 prompts below and at the end of your homework you should have 5 prompts rewritten in your own words. Not 1 or 3, but FIVE. If you don‘t know what a word means in the prompt, look it up. Ask for help from family members if you don’t understand what the prompt means. Helpful hints: Some times when you rewrite a prompt, you might need to use some words from the original prompt in your version of the prompt and this is ok. Just try to use as much of your own language as possible when you rewrite it. Also, if English is not your first language, you should feel comfortable using some of your own native language or even emoticons to help rewrite the prompts. Remember rewriting the prompts is a strategy to help you (not a teacher or a peer) to figure out what the prompt is asking you to do.
