7th Grade ELA

Tina Mowrey


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to a new school year! I am so excited to get to know your child. We are going to have a great year!

Just a few reminders, before we get started. Each student will need the following supplies (every day in class):

  • A composition book (Writer's Notebook)
  • Pencil
  • 1 pocket folder or designated place to store loose papers
  • Personal reading materials (book, magazines, e-reader)
  • Earbuds/headphones (not a must, but so nice to have)

Your child will read The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton this semester. This novel pairs with our personal narrative unit, as well as our investigation of character elements.

We will begin reading on Monday, September 24th. We ask that each student will have their own copy of the text. Owning a personal copy will enable students to take notes in the book and use the notes for quizzes/tests. Half Price Books, Amazon, and Book People should all have copies available.

Thank you for supporting classroom instruction.
