Welcome Back to our first full week of school! The kids will be very tired, so lets work on getting enough sleep:) In reading this week we will continue working on our first short story called "7th Grade" by Gary Soto. We will work with our plot pyramid and go over the different aspects of the pyramid. I will also introduce our Vocabulary workbooks which are new to the junior high. In each of the units, (20) new vocabulary words will be introduced and worked with in each of the (5) different sections. In writing, we will go over the six traits of writing and how we will incorporate them into our writing assignments. In language, we will go over the different parts of speech, putting the rules into our interactive notebooks....have a great week.
