I cannot believe that it is December already! There is only three weeks till Winter Break. This week we are studying the root DUC, DUCT to lead, bring or take. Quiz is THURSDAY. 12/3.
Root for week of 12/7-12/11 is leg, lect = law, gather, select or read
The last week before break 12/14-12/18 will be a review week of all the words.
Dates to remember:
Friday 12/4 is the 6th grade field trip to Epcot. We are leaving at 8:30 am and arriving back at 8:30.
Students should wear a green shirt and do not need to bring a backpack to school that day.
Our skill for the next few weeks is Irony.
Reading is a semester long class designed to help students with the challenging reading demands of middle school. There is no assigned textbook. Students will read a variety of short stories, newspaper and magazine articles, plays and study both Latin and Greek roots. Each week on Monday, the students will study a list of given roots with the quiz on Friday.
Happy reading and have a great week,
PS. If your student needs another copy of the root word list, please look under the PDF file on my website. The word lists are found under the heading, SECOND Nine Weeks Root Word Lists.
