In addition to the beginning mini lessons and assigned exercises, students will create a Grammar Guide. Listed below is the start for requirements. Items will be added according to specific needs that arise in the classroom throughout the year.
Throughout the year we will be completing various exercises and activities that relate to specific grammar rules and expectations for 8th grade. While you are completing these mostly online, you will also need to create a hard copy book to use for future reference. The following should be used as a Table of Contents/Checklist for your completed book. Because this book will be completed throughout the year, I am putting the responsibility in your hands to ensure all elements get completed and are not lost. This book will be graded at the end of the year.
