8th Grade Literature

Here we go!  Please remember to bring your summer reading projects.  I have been reviewing the Flipgrid videos.  They are great!  We are going to start this year with a unit on text structure.  We will also continue to focus on additional reading outside of class with projects and book discussions.  I am looking forward to a great year with these guys.

 

"A book is made from a tree. It is an assemblage of flat, flexible parts (still called “leaves”) imprinted with dark pigmented squiggles. One glance at it and you hear the voice of another person, perhaps someone dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, the author is speaking, clearly and silently, inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people, citizens of distant epochs, who never knew one another. Books break the shackles of time—proof that humans can work magic." —Carl Sagan

7th Grade English

Welcome back!  We are going to continue our DGP daily practice along with the Vocabulary Workshop we utilized last year.  Our first unit this year will focus on writing paragraphs effectively.

 

 

6th Grade Literature

Welcome to 6th Grade!  I am very excited to get to know each student. Please don't forget to turn in your summer reading assignment. While I will cover all classroom expectations in class, it is required that each student bring a book to read everyday to class.  Reading outside of the assigned class readings is expected.  We will start with a unit on inferences.  It should be a fun start to the year.

Out-of-school reading habits of students has shown that even 15 minutes a day of independent reading can expose students to more than a million words of text in a year.
