In my homeroom, in reading, students are completing the unit on interpreting short texts in order to deepen their understanding of characters and to develop theories about life lessons authors may be trying to show in their writing. In writing workshop, students are writing argumentative essays, as well as compare/contrast essays. We have started to examine the Latin and Greek roots of words in vocabulary study. Parents, even though we have moved to a new reading log format, please be sure to check on your child's reading. The new reading log only needs to be signed once a week, on Thursday, before it is turned in on Friday.
