    Week 1 - 

    It has been a great first week in Eng 1 and ELA.  In both classes, the students started their first units.  The students read related texts, wrote summaries, had discussions, and presented information.  The students have interactive notebooks with vocabulary words, a letter to the teacher, and notes on a reading strategy.  One great way to help students with their comprehension is to ask students to re-tell you what they have read.  So, please ask your child to tell you all about what we have been reading this week!

    The assessments will be on Friday, September 9.  The assessments will cover the texts, the vocab, and the reading skills associated with the text.  Students can prepare for their assessment by re-reading the text and practicing the review questions that will be loaded in google classroom.
