Students will be working on a multitude of skills throughout the year: reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary, spelling, grammar, research, and communication (listening/speaking). Our units in both the 7th and 8th grade will include experiences such as reading short stories (fiction), nonfiction, poetry, drama, completing a research project, and journaling. Our goals are to work hard, have fun, communicate appropriately, and master some valuable skills that will lead all of us to a successful, well-rounded future.
Most importantly, I want all students to develop an interest in reading. Students are to select books of their choice that match up to their reading level and work towards reaching 40 or more Accelerated Reading Points by the end of each semester as part of their grade.
Please feel free to use this site to see what we are doing in the classroom each day! Lessons for the week could change slightly, depending on how each day goes.
I look forward to working with you and your child, as we have a successful and fun school year. Feel free anytime to contact me.
