Dear Parents and Students,

Class Motto: We read closely, think deeply, and write completely!

Expository Writing: 6th and 7th Grade classes will be working on analyzing the structure of Expository Essays to help prepare them for the upcoming unit on Argumentative writing. All work for the week should be completed in class, therefore, I have not scheduled any homework the week of November 10th. Remember to read some of your AR book though!

Progress Reports: Students may make arrangements with me to stay after school and work on assignments that they have not completed. They may also stay for tutoring on writing assignments. I am available most days of the week with the exception of Mondays.

AR Reading: 2nd 9 Weeks testing begins October 13th. Students should have two books checked out. Students are given opportunity most days of the week to read and AR test as well as check out books when they have finished testing. Students should try to achieve their point goal by earning a few points each week. Students are assigned points according to their Reading FCAT scores. The point chart is listed in the planner on page 20. Deadline days are posted on an attached .pdf document.  If your child is reading a large book, then they should be sure to get approval by me. If a student waits until the last week to test on a "big book" and fails the test, he or she is in jeopardy of not making their goal and earning a poor grade for the marking period.

Students may also want to revisit some of the lessons from class at home. They can do this through LearnZillion, an online tutorial of the new Florida Standards for English Language Arts.  https://learnzillion.com/          Enter Quick Codes to find lessons
