Welcome to my Language Arts website!
It's hard to believe we are rounding the final bend in the school year! Currently, my 7th grade students are studying Unit 5 in their textbooks which focuses primarily on folklore and the big question, "Community or individual -- which is more important?" They will have the opportunity to write and present their own myths that suggest how certain natural occurrences have come into being. My 8th grade students are concluding their study of the Holocaust with a project called "The Diary of Anne Frank" Portfolio Journal. This project will be a "book" of fourteen chapters that includes a timeline of World War II and the Holocaust, as well as a narrative, an informational essay, poetry, and personal journal entries. You can find the information for this assignment on my website.
Please encourage your child to keep up with their AR reading. The fourth nine weeks 100% goal is May 13. As always, feel free to e-mail or call me with any questions or concerns you may have.
