Important Dates:

1-26-18 – Progress reports

1-26-18 – ½ day

Language Arts:

We are working on context clues, author’s purpose and reading comprehension in grammar and spelling assignments, there will be daily exercises that will need to be completed and turned in for a grade. These items are worth 20 points a day and add up quickly! These will be done in class, if it is not done and completed in class then it is homework and turned in first thing in the morning. (Absences do not count towards or against the grade)

Reading:

6th – The Outsiders – students have required assignments in their journals.

7/8th – Treasure Island – several projects will be required of the students during the reading; rubric of end of novel assignments have been given to the students. They should be working on these during the entire reading of the novel.

Each reading group is given comprehension questions, vocabulary, worksheets and a either a project or writing assignment to go with the books. The students are given the project assignments at the beginning of the book and all work assigned during the reading of the book is due a week after we finish the book.  I do a midway check on all assignments that have been given to the students to make sure they are on track with their work.

Writing:

We will be working on outlines, paragraphs and essays. Essays will be based off of writing prompts: at the beginning of the week the students will be given a writing prompt, (any genre) they will begin with an outline, topic sentence, move into a rough draft, then have it revised by a peer or the teacher; students will then be required to type it and turn it in via email or flash drive by the given due date, usually the Friday of the week it was assigned unless it is a larger writing project. Larger writing projects will be given a specific rubric with a specific due date. Late assignments will not be accepted.

MATH:

6TH -8th - We are working through our Saxon books, all grades levels should be receiving homework nightly.

Science:

6-8th  We are working with physical/states of matter

Thank you,
