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.
Students will get a list of 10 words that contain the root in class on Monday. The quiz will be Friday. These root word quizzzes are 45% of the grades in this class. Students that study and score well on these assessments normally do well in this class.
Week of 2/25-2/29= POS= to put or place
Skills: multiple meaning words.
Demand Writing is Tuesday 2/26.
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, FIRST Nine Weeks Root Word Lists.
