Dear Parents and Students,

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

Writing Task Assignment: Students will be given a writing task prompt with sources to read. Students will plan and write their essay response. We will assess the writing together with the rubric and work on revising and editing. All work should be done in class. If extra time is needed, then the student should work at home to finish the assignment on time. All due dates for assignments are listed on the calendar below.

Please find notes on .pdf document for how to plan and write your argumentative essay. There is also a sample essay to study.

 Test: Thursday, February 26th (multiple choice and Matching) Use Quizlet to study.

Tutoring: Students that need to make up work or want extra help with assignments may stay after school on Wednesday or Thursday afternoons from 3:15-4:15. Students should make arrangements with me before planning to stay.

AR Reading: 3rd 9 Weeks testing begins January 7th. 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.
