English Language Arts

The week of April 27th in English Language Arts:

This week we will cover the following

  • Poetry
    We will begin our unit of poetry this week. We will review figurative language terms and learn new ones exclusively associated with poetry. We will then practice close-reading strategies and apply them to poetry. 
  • Kansas Writing Assessment will be next week

Students will also have a weekly grammar mini-lesson. Each Monday they will be taught a skill and each Friday they will be assessed over that skill. During the week I will have 2-3 small study activities for this skill, but students are expected to study their notes each night at home to ensure they are retaining and learning the new information!

This week's grammar lesson: No grammar lesson

As always, if there are any questions

please e-mail me!
