Hello & welcome to your first weekly language arts blog!
This week, the middle school will be doing similar activities to get back into the routine of writing regularly. We will be reading and analyzing text for several Scope magazine articles, as well as completing writing tasks related to those articles. In addition to reviewing literary elements throughout these articles, we will be going through grammar review in several activities in class. Unless an in-class activity is unfinished, there will not be any homework for reading or language arts this week. Next week, we will begin working in our Literature books. Stay tuned… 🙂
Next week, we will begin our weekly vocabulary lists & quizzes, as well as reading logs. For those of you new to the middle school, I distribute & go over vocabulary lists on Monday and students have a vocabulary homework practice page every Monday night. They should be reading at least 30 minutes each night in order to complete their weekly reading log, due every Friday morning. It is fine if they have activities and you combine reading time on other nights. Students will have a vocabulary quiz every Friday over the current week’s words. They will save these weekly lists in their LA binder because they have a cumulative list test at the end of every grading period.
