Please Note that due to time contraints in our afternoon classes, these subjects are not always taught in isolation everyday. Often these subjects are incorporated into Social Studies activities. For example, students will complete "Who Am I" reports and Current Events assignments that will receive a Social Studies and a Spelling/English/Writing grade. I assign many multi-grade assignments in Social Studies! 8th Grade students need to use their spelling, English, and writing skills in everyday activities (life skills), not always in isolation. Students will also have several writing assignments for contests as well as classroom writing that will count towards their grades.
