Students are expected to read in class and at home! Check agenda daily for homework.
*We will work on specific concepts in class.
It is so important to write. I challenge my students to find reasons to write. Write your vocabulary, write your thoughts, write a letter to a friend (or a teacher!)... WRITE! We will use a composition book for writing.
*We will work on specific grammar and punctuation skills in class.
Speaking and Listening:
Communication through spoken words is also very important skill for all of us to master.
*We will practice speaking in public, in small groups, and with a partner during class.
We will be learning words that will help boost students' vocabulary. We will also learn 8th grade stems this year. Students will receive 20 words per week and will complete vocabulary activities for those words. *Vocabulary tests will be each Friday.
