Week of 3/20/17
I am beyond happy, proud, and amazed with the growth I have seen in all my 7th grade writers. Hard work and a positive attitude have paid off! Yes, this may be a bonus on a pop quiz. Shhhhhhh.... don't tell students who never read my website.
Writing: Students will start reading topics of interest, so they will be ready to have a topic in mind for their research paper. The goal is for students to love what they are researching and writing about. Any Core Knowledge topic learned in social studies is acceptable. We will start the research process 3/28. I will explain more in class this week.

Vocabulary: WW Unit 10 A-E and crossword puzzle will be completed in class next Monday.
Grammar: Students will start continue learning how to use punctuation and capitalization correctly. The following sections will be on the test: 7.3, 7.4, 7.6, 7.7, 7.8, 7.9 and 7.11. Test is tentatively set for Friday 3/24. Memorizing rules is the key to success with punctuation and capitalization. Study the rules a few minutes each night, so that you don't have to cram Thursday night.
