Language Arts Update (6th – 8th) – April 20-24

writing clipartSeventh and Eighth grade students will continue working on research papers this week.  They will be using the first few days to create notecards by either directly quoting, summarizing, or paraphrasing information from their sources.  We will then put this information together to create fluent paragraphs with transitions.  At the end of the week, students will review diagramming.

Sixth grade students will begin the week by writing a narrative.  Students will incorporate all of the elements of a story and will include properly punctuated dialogue.  Students will end the week presenting a process analysis speech.

Students will complete Vocabulary Unit 10 this week and will test on Friday.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
