Welcome to 7th grade!

 

Until students can show to me that they can complete their homework on time, they need to have their agenda signed by a parent everyday. I will check every Friday to make sure this is being done. Once students have shown they are responsible, I will only have those students who were late turning in their work have their agendas signed. Thank you for your help in making this happen.

English

Every day students have a warm-up to do. The warm-ups involve correcting grammar, spelling and punctuation.

We have completed our units on nouns, verbs, prepositional phrases, and pronouns, but students are still responsible for remembering this information and for keeping all of their notes as well as returned, graded papers.

We are working on our 9 weeks narrative writing prompt.

Tentatively we have our 9 weeks test scheduled for Thursday, October 5th, but I am still waiting on approval from supervisors.

 

Reading

Every day in reading, we have independent silent reading for 10-15 minutes. Students will need to have a book in class everyday for this. We will begin going to the library next Tuesday and then every other Tuesday after that. Students will be responsible for their silent reading a number of different ways. They will record information about their book each day as they read and they will have different options available to them to report about what they have read such as writing summaries.

We continue to learn about plot structure including; exposition, initiating event, rising action, climax, falling action, resolution and conflict.

We worked on theme with "Duffy's Jacket" along with reviewing the plot structure.

Our 9 weeks tests are scheduled below:

4th period: Oct. 9-10

5th period: Oct. 11-12

7th period: Oct 12-13

I am expecting great things from our students this year as always. We will have a wonderful and productive year. I can't wait to get started!
