Here is an update about what we have going on in Reading and ELA.
In Reading class, we are beginning Unit 5 in our Florida Ready Workbooks. Please remember since so much of the reading class is done in class, the student's attendance and attention in class is crucial to do well in this class. In addition, please remember student's homework for Reading class is 30 minutes of free reading and a 1 page journal entry nightly. This should be done Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights and will be checked randomly without notice to ensure it is being kept up with.
In ELA class, we are have been very busy with Argumentative Essay Writing. Students have been going through the process of reading, organizating, and writing that we have been reviewing and practicing for the past few weeks. They will receive a Test grade on their final product.
Tuesday, February 28th, is the Writing FSA! Please make sure they get plenty of sleep. I am very confident in their skills based on their hard work these past two months as we trudged through both the Infomative and Argumentative writing units. :)
Please remember you can stay up to date with student grades by logging into Focus (Parent Portal). If you do not already have access, please contact the office for paperwork and log in information for you student.
Please also make sure that your student still has the supplies they need for class (notebooks, paper, pencils, pens and anything else they might need). We are half way through the year and many of them are coming to class without them.
