Today your child is bringing home the 3rd quarter report card. Celebrate successes and encourage him or her to set goals for the rest of the year: neater handwriting, AR points by the midquarter, asking more questions in class - we strive to do our best with the abilities God has given us. Please don't hesitate to contact me or a subject area teacher with questions.
I hope all of you have a restful and fun break.
English 6 Week of March 13-17thSpelling: Unit 23, packet and quiz on Friday.
English: This week we are continuing with our modifiers unit. We are discussing proper adjectives, the use of more/most, and adverbs.
Writing: Last week students wrote haikus and recipes using vivid word choices and proper adjectives. This week we focused on a close read---meaning we analyzed a short text passage for meanings and inferences. After spring break we will begin our research paper and continue on with close reading/analysis writings.
