Important Dates:

9-15 Progress Reports

 

Language Arts:

We are working on context clues, author’s purpose and reading comprehension in grammar, there will be daily exercise 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 – this is not a homework issue (unless otherwise specified), if it is not done and completed in class there will be no score given for that day. (Absences do not count towards or against the grade)

Reading:

6th – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Almost finished

7/8th – Iliad

 

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.

This week we are doing a persuasive essay.

 

Math:

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

Science:

6/7/8th – We are working on the human body, we have started with cells and the skeletal system. A project rubric will be coming home by the end of the week.

Social Studies:  We are working on the Greek culture.
