What's Up in Our Language Arts Classroom
Week of December 14th
Reading and Writing
This week students will be taking the District Benchmark Assessment in reading (Tuesday) and writing (Wednesday). The assessments will be scored for evaluation/reflection purposes only. The scores will not be included in our grade book.
Persuasive/opinion writing is our next writing genre. We'll begin looking at persuasion in commercials, billboards, online pop up ads, and print advertisements.
Spelling/Vocabulary--No words this week. We'll pick up our word study in the new year with spelling.
