Week of 4/27

As we turn the corner to May, we complete our novel studies and move to short stories, poetry and creative writing. We will begin the last grammar unit covering pronouns. Our last vocabulary unit will consist of figurative language terms. This week you have two assessments and your final draft of the Persuasive Essay due. Plan your time carefully. Extra time in class following a test may be used for any outstanding work you need to complete in language arts. If all work is completed, you will begin reading Greek Myths.

Monday: BizTown

Tuesday/Wednesday: Adverb Unit Test (this will include concepts covered in all previous units)

Thursday: Vocabulary and Roots Test Unit 12
                  We will begin the Pronoun Unit when the test is finished.

Friday: "B" Day begins at the Lower School for Kabbalat Shabbat as we wish the 8th graders n'siah tovah!

This week's "homework" is to use your time to make final edits to your essay and to STUDY!!!
Turn in TWO printed copies of your essay to me on Friday. Use your rubric!
You will have an Edmodo post due next week.
