Tuesday, September 29, 2015:  Class began with students sharing sentences they created in response to the second assignment in the Syntax packet.  Students then worked in pairs to complete the third assignment in the Syntax packet, and shared their answers with the rest of the class.  Students picked up a Tone and Language Terms (sorted into categories) page as well as a Tone vocabulary page, and had remaining time in class to define all terms on the Tone vocabulary page.  The tone vocabulary will be checked for a grade at the start of class tomorrow.
