It was great to be back at school last week! The students were well-rested and relatively happy to be back!
In 6th grade LA, the students are completing individual persuasive advertisements, either a video or a "print ad", which is due by April 23rd at the latest. Many students have already completed their video or ad and have submitted it to the assignment folder on Google Classroom. We are working on Unit 6 in Grammar, and I expect to find a few challenges with this week's lessons, so we'll take it slow to avoid frustration.
In 6th grade Reading, the students are in our co-curricular unit with Social Studies on Greek Mythology. They will also have a List 9 Vocab quiz on Friday. April 23rd.
In 7th grade Reading, students are hard at work studying the literary elements of a variety of short stories, a few of which the parents may be familiar with from their own middle school days!
Have a GREAT week!
