Spring is in the air!
Dear parents & students,
It's testing time again. In the fourth nine weeks, we will study Night and conduct LEAP prep to help us review for state testing. During our last unit of study, we will continue to interpret and respond to texts through close reading and writing literary analyses.
Now, I know everyone is excited about up-coming spring and summer breaks; however, we need to stay focus. Listed below are a few helpful tips to ensure students' success.
1. Library day is every Monday. Students should bring books to class to check-in or renew during their class time with me every Monday. If students are having trouble selecting a book, they can get ideas from the ELA Resource #3 link, located to the right. (Also, remember, students should read their AR books for 20 minutes each night.)
2. If students have been absent from my class for any reason, they can find make-up assignments on the website, Common Lit. (The link is located to the right on this page.) Make-up work is posted at the beginning of every week and removed at the end of the week. Students are to complete the assignments to receive a grade for missed work. (Also, students should have their username and password; however, if they don't, they can get it from me.)
3. Although after-school tutoring has ended, my students can still receive extra help in ELA via Moby Max website. (The link is located to the right under ELA Interventions.) Students can work on various components of ELA at their own level and pace through the website to improve areas of weakness in this subject area. (Again, students should have their username and password; however, if they don't, they can get it from me.)
4. Class Rules:
* Be seated and prepared to work when the bell rings.
* Be respectful of others and their property.
* Ask permission from the teacher to leave your seat.
* Maintain your area.
* Obey all school rules.
By following these rules, your child will experience a positive learning atmosphere.
4. School supplies:
* 1 composition notebook
