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.
The root of this week is POS=to place. Students will get a list of words to study in class on Monday. Quiz is Friday.
Homework for this week: Monday: a practice page on the POS root words.
Wednesday: reading practice page
UPDATED on 8/19; no homework on analogies) Students started on a ROOT WORD SUPER HERO project in class that will be due on Monday August 24.
MIDDLE SCHOOL OPEN HOUSE IS Thursday. Please report to your child's first period class. You will then follow his or her normal schedule.
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. We study the lists in the order they occur.
