- In the Classroom:
- We are in the middle of our last quarter of 8th Grade! We are preparing for the EOG assessments starting in a few weeks. During the last two weeks, we focused on analyzing non-fiction text structures (comparison/contrast, sequence of events, chronological order, cause & effect, problem & solution, and description). For the next two weeks, we will continue to study these same text structures using narrative, short story/fiction passages.
- For vocabulary, we are learning 8th grade academic words. We are synthesizing all of our studies this year by learning how to use context clues to figure out what vocabulary word makes the most sense in a sentence.
- Our last media center checkout for this year was Wednesday, May 10th. Students received a list of overdue books that need to be returned by this date. If these books cannot be located, fines must be paid before June 8th.
- In the Classroom: Students are completing missing assignments, receiving Core assignment/project support, reviewing for upcoming EOG assessments, and taking tests to accommodate separate setting accommodations for IEP compliance. The goal for all students in Curriculum Assistance for Quarter 4 is to FINISH STRONG! # Class of 2021
