Greetings - Last week we had a narrative project due and an inferences test. As a result, I did not test the students on the vocabulary listed in my last post. Therefore, Tuesday, students will be assessed. If your child has not turned in their 1st, 2nd, 3rd person narrative project, please encourage him or her to do so asap.
We have begun a new unit. In the Footsteps of Crazy Horse is our anchor text. Students will be annotating and summarizing as they read.
Our grammar focus will be on dependent and independent clauses. I will teach this focus throughout the week and plan to assess next week.
Our writing focus will continue to be narratives;however, there will be a strong emphasis on using figurative language. Students will be writing fictional narratives for their last formal writing assessment of the quarter.
In My Class:
All students are expected to behave as scholars. I am dedicated to fostering a safe, supportive, fun, rigorous academic environment. I love my job, I love your kids, and I'm going to do my best for them. I expect them to do their best as well.
