What's Happening in class?

I hope everyone had a fun, relaxing spring break!!!!!!!!!!

***I would like to introduce my spring 2008 student teacher, Mrs. Ann Ruvalcaba!! Mrs. Ruvalcaba comes to Lakeview from North Central College in Naperville. Mrs. Ruvalcaba has a history with Lakeview in that both her children attended Lakeview, and she was a fantastic teacher's aide at Lakeview a few years back, for approximately 2 1/2 years. She then decided to go back to school to get her teaching degree, and my students and I are very lucky to have her back in my classroom in the role of teacher!

Welcome back, Mrs. Ruvalcaba! We're happy you're here! :)

This week in language arts, we will be focusing on Unit 13 in Wordskills. We will introduce the unit on Monday. On Friday, unit 13 will be corrected, and there will be a quiz on the unit's 20 target words' definitions.

Additionally, we will be reviewing capitalization rules this week, including a daily focus of 4-5 rules, group practice of the rules during class, and individual practice each night.

This week in reading, we will continue reading the play, Romeo and Juliet, discussing and analyzing the plot, characters and language as we do. There will be a quiz on Acts I and II of the play this week, and all students will receive study guides and an in-class review to prepare for the play's first quiz.

***Here's to the hope that the month of APRIL will bring warmer weather!
