Mrs. N. LeBlanc-Smith 8th Gr. English & 7th Gr. Reading

Welcome to English 8

In English 8, we will not just learn to appreciate the language we use everyday, but we will also learn to write and read more effectively.

Announcements: Gerunds & their Phrases QUIZ: Thursday, Jan. 23rd 

WW TEST 6: Thursday, Jan. 30th 

See IXL Login under Important Links. Students should practice under Language Arts, particularly Grammar and Mechanics, GG. Verb Tense (#7). Required IXL for class: TBD. See Google Classroom English 8 for resources on Gerunds.

Our focus in January will be grammar, specifically Verbals: participles, gerunds, and infinitives. Verbals have a verb form but are used as a noun, an adjective, or an adverb.
