The week of September 27th - October 2nd
Language Arts- Mrs. Groomes
Our Mastery Assessment will be given on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. Students are demonstrating their knowledge of the literary terms through application. Students will read a passage and apply their knowledge by identifying examples of these terms. Our Latin and Greek root words this week are “graph”, “gram”, “scrib”, and “scrip”. Students will receive practice these roots this week so that they will be prepared for their test at the end of next week. We did finish the novel, Empty, last week. Students will create a narrative in which they begin the sequel to Empty. Please ensure your student is reading 20-30 minutes every night. Please feel free to email with any questions.
Math- Mrs. Wegner
Science- Mrs. Jackson
Social Studies- Mrs. Bense
Students will take their first Mastery Assessment tomorrow in class. They received a study guide and today we played Jeopardy to review. The rest of the week will be spent discussing events that led to the Revolutionary War.
