English Language Arts

The week of October 16th in English Language Arts:

   This week we will cover the following:
  • To Kill a Mockingbird
    • We will continue reading Harper Lee's classic To Kill a Mockingbird. We will continue our discussion and study of vocabulary in the novel and will move on to discussing more symbols, themes, and metaphors. We will begin Part Two of the novel and begin prepping for our Mock Trial activity.

Students did a great job on their Independent Novels project options. They will receive next quarter's project assignment the first week of November.

This year 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: None


Conferences are this week on Wednesday-Friday. Hope to see you all there!


Go Royals!
