The root of the week is pul, puls= drive, driven. Quiz is Friday.
We will be continuing our study of central or main idea and starting with inference. Students will be reading true accounts of Rachel Carson and her fight to take care of the environment as well as stories how teenagers who fought Hitler.
There is no assigned book for this class and no daily homework. However each week our class will have a root of the week. On Monday, each student will get a list of 10 words that all contain the same root. We will study the words during the week with the quiz on Friday. Students will need to study their list for the quiz on Friday. A complete list of the root word can be found on my website as a PDF file.(Look under first nine week root word lists.) We will study the lists in order they appear.
3rd period: This week all classes will take the root word quiz on Friday.
