ELA 6

This week, learners read a combination of informational texts and fiction. The biography they read in lesson 1.11 helped them understand a tale from One Thousand and One Nights in lesson 1.12. Having a balance between reading fiction and non-fiction is key as we learn differently from each! As we go through the year, learners will continue to learn so much from what they read. You can help them by discussing what they are reading at home, reading aloud with them (every so often), and modeling these things yourself.


Next week, learners who are on pace will be completing their first module exam in ELA. This exam will consist of two parts: a multiple choice test and an essay test. Please help your learner prepare for these tests by teaching them study and test taking skills. Please do not allow them to use their notes to take the test. I would like the tests done independently for they are summative assessments and should provide a picture of their true learning.



Don't hesitate to reach out with questions at any time! I will get them answered as soon as possible!


Have a great weekend......

ELA 7

Learners are preparing to write a 5-paragraph essay. In class this week, many took (or added) to notes about the 5 decisions writers must make before writing: purpose, audience, voice, tone and style. I am proud that so many learners were able to identify the key details about these main ideas from their lessons. We will continue to talk about these decisions all year as we write!


Next week, your learner will actually complete their essay and take the module exam. Please be aware that these are all summative assessments. Help your learners by proofreading papers, teaching them study skills, and preparing them to do their best on tests. Please do not help on the exam when it comes. Have them put their notes away and do what they can do. I would like to get an accurate picture of each learner’s knowledge.

ELA 8

Learners should have completed their summative writing assessment in 1.10-the memoir. If your learner has not completed this assignment, please help them through it. All learners will need to earn an A or a B on summative assessments in order to move forward in the semester. Memoirs that have been turned in are graded and some learners will need some extra help to improve their writing. Each writing assignment has a rubric attached for grading. Please review this to know how your learner’s memoir will be graded.

Computer Apps 1

Word, EduTyping and Digital Citizenship continue to be our focus. Most learners are getting the hang of using the eBook for Word, logging into EduTyping, and reflecting on their responsibility of being a digital citizen! If your learner has questions or difficulties completing assignments, please have them reach out. Email is usually the quickest way to get ahold of me, but I would also encourage learners to start keeping track of questions that they may need help so that they can ask during Face to Face time.

As a reminder, here is a great site for all things common sense when dealing with our digital world!
