    Are you bored yet?

    I created a Wakelet collection for you just in case... 😊
    Most of these are links that will take you to some familiar places, and I added in a couple more that I've found this week from websites that are looking to help teachers and students during this school closure.  Visiting these sites is voluntary, but recommended, when you've realized just how much you miss school.  💜  Spread the word that this is out there to your classmates.  🐝

    Report cards will go home tomorrow, Tuesday 1/8.  Although no formal conferences are scheduled, if you would like to meet, please let me know.  

    The Article of the Week homework assignments will begin again this week.  Please encourage your child to turn these in on time and to carefully adhere to the scoring rubric to earn maximum points.  

    English MAP Testing will be Jan. 8 - Jan. 11.  Please be sure students are well-rested and have a hearty breakfast each morning to help them perform their best :)  Thank you!

    Article of the Week homework assignments are now in full swing.  A new article will be distributed every Wednesday and due the following Tuesday.  Students are expected to thoroughly annotate the article and respond in writing to focus questions.  A Reading grade and a Writing grade will be earned for each article.  Scoring rubrics will be attached, and students have an overview sheet in their binder noting clear expectations for these assignments.  They should also have several modeled examples of articles we've completed in class to assist them.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

    A Scholastic Book Club order form will be sent home 9/24.  You can order online or send the order form with payment back in to me.  This is an easy way to get great books in the hands of your middle schooler!  Your orders through Scholastic also allow me to grow our classroom library with books your kids want to read.  Please consider helping us out :)  Open the flyer for more details.

    Welcome to 7th Grade!  Check back periodically for classroom updates and new resources.  Students have access all year to the folder titled "Instructional Resources" which allows them to print another copy of a lost homework assignment.  Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns regarding your child's English instruction.
