This week in ELA, students will review for the mock writing test (to be administered on Wednesday), learn about the subtle nuances of punctuation, and work on their reading and writing contract assignments. Students will get their first progress check for reading and writing this week, which will be graded. Ask your child how he or she is progressing, and check Infinite Campus to see how that progress is reflected in his or her grade.

We will continue the energy unit this week. Students will be doing an activity on geothermal energy.

We will have our summative assessments for the energy unit on the following days:

Study the energy unit study guide each night for 10-15 minutes in preparation for these assessments. We will also do review activities in class to prepare for the assessments.
