Read your independent book and write your book report. It's due on Monday morning.
Linda, are you working on that book report?
Yes, Mom, I'm reading right now.
When I was in elementary school, my teacher assigned a book report.
So I started reading my book that day in class.
My mom made sure I was working on this assignment for homework that week.
On the weekend, I chose to hang out with my friends rather than write the report.
When Sunday night arrived, I still had so much work to do on my book report. I had to stay up until 2 a.m. to finish it.
Even though I completed my report on time, I was exhausted in school on Monday. I decided that I would never again wait until the last night to write a report. From then on I always got my work done before hanging out with friends or doing other activities.
