This week students will be assessed on their new sets of Greek and Latin roots. I don't have them with me, now, but I'll be glad to put them up on Weebly when I get back to school Monday.
I also need to assess students on Compound Sentences. Both quizzes should be farily simple, but encourage your child to study his or her notes; it would be a shame to blow it when it could be a nice addition to the grade book.
We will be finishing In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse. I will ask students to type up all their chapter summaries and submit them to me via email once the final chapter is complete. I won't expect those to be submitted until next week.
Quite soon we will begin a new IB Unit and start reading Bronx Masquerade.
Thanks for checking in - JN
