Seventh grade language arts is currently working on sentence structure (Chapter One in their English Book) and short stories in their literature text. They are working on literary terms such as characters, plot, setting, theme, main ideas, point of view, and imagery. We wrote a descriptive paper and turned it in. We are finishing up our last week of short stories from our literature book. We will take a 100-point test next Tuesday, September 20th. Students have been given notes on everything that is on their upcoming test.
The Smallest Dragonboy
All Summer in a Day
A Man Who Had No Eyes
The War of the Wall
Students read AR books during my class. I set their goals. If you would like to have computer access to your child's AR test results and books that they have read, you may have your child get a permission slip from me with an access code. You will be able to monitor their progress throughout the year. Students should be at 50% or more on their AR goal. A progress report will come out shortly. Please check where they are, sign, and return.
