What's happening in class?

Though short, the week of October 14th through October 17th will be busy!

In language arts last Friday, students took a verb quiz covering all the verb info. we had covered in the the last 2 weeks. They did very well on the quiz!

In language arts this week, we are entering the exciting world of prepositions! :) We will begin review and practice today, and and there will be a preposition quiz on Thursday. I'm hoping this part of speech will also be easily mastered..........Also, I will return final draft narrative essays on Thursday of this week. So far, the essays look good! Revisions have turned several essays into well-written, "A" worthy narratives!

In reading, we continue delving into the world of Steve Harmon, the lead character of our novel, Monster. Things are not looking good for Steve. Several witnesses' testimonies have been quite damaging and we're not even certain Steve's own father believes his innocence. Stay tuned to see if things start turning around for Steve..........
