Class Motto: We read closely, think deeply, and write completely!
Novel Study: 6th Grade is reading, "Searching for Candlestick Park" and 7th Grade is reading, "Tangerine". Students will be reading and answering questions in class. They may also be assigned reading for homework. Reading assignments will be listed on the calendar as homework if and when assigned.
Tutoring: 4th 9 weeks: Tutoring is available on Wednesday afternoons. Students need to let me know if they will be coming to my classroom so I will know to meet them there after carline. Please contact me if you have any concerns about your child's grades and the need for extra help.
AR Reading: 4th 9 Weeks testing begins March 16th. 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.
