English Fundamentals (Periods 1 & 3) -- We are working on Book C of our program called Language! (Period 1 is continuing on from last year; period 3 is leaping in at the beginning.) This is a multi-sensory approach to teaching language and reading skills. We will be doing loads of in-class writing. Be sure to study your spelling words each week! Check your planner for the spelling list.
Language! Class (Period 7) -- On the road to attaining super reading skills, we will be delving in our new Language! Program. This multi-sensory program addresses the stepping stones of reading while teaching grammar and how the English language works. Students, be sure to read at home three times a week for 20 minutes. That's one hour of reading a week. You will be keeping a reading log of what you read.
Reading Fundamentals Class-- Students! Beginning Sept 5th, your homework will be to spend time (20 minutes three times a week -- for 60 minutes total) reading at home. Read a magazine or book, but be sure to read more to become a better reader! You will be taking home reading logs to keep track of what you read.
