How can I express my thanks for the best teacher appreciation week ever! Mrs. O'Connor worked so hard to make everything perfect, and it was. Mrs. Andersson gave up her afternoon to entertain the troops. The kids had a nice week too, ending with the beautiful Maycrowning. Everyone looked so beautiful and handsome. I hope all moms were treated like queens for the day!! Our time is running out so quickly that before you know it, you will have 8th graders!!!
In reading this week, we go back to our HMH books. This next unit is considered science writing, so our stories are about outer space. After our test on The Outsiders on Monday, 5/9, we will start off with a story called Martian Metropolis. We will talk about how it would be to live on Mars. We will have vocabulary and comprehension questions once again.
In language, we are going to review capitalization , root words and types of sentences.
