Marking Summer B-Notebook Entries

The B-note is where the students write their journal entries. I have been going through them all day today, as it's the first day of school and they hand in a lot of their summer homework today.

Here are some samples from third year student Miss Marina Yamanaka, to give you a taste of what they are like. Marina wrote more entries (34 in 40 days) than any other student this summer. These are exactly how she wrote them, line breaks, grammar, spelling, capitalisation. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
