Today’s lengthy class discussion and notes from PPT focused on Verbs – Chapter 3. They enjoyed playing a fun game in small groups to reinforce the topic. Follow your Agenda this week for all questions, classwork, and assignments. Writing Assignment on Agenda: Choose a familiar Bible story to write in poetry form.

We spent the morning closely going over our class procedures, syllabus, and agenda. Each student should now have a clear idea of how our class will operate and my expectations. We did a curriculum check which was recorded as their first grade in our gradebook. For those who were still missing supplies, please bring  them next week. All students received a copy of our class agenda. Please refer to the class agenda this week for all weekly work and assignments which we went over how to complete in class. It is going to be a great school year

LA7 Fall Semester Agenda 2017 – This is the basic outline for your fall 2017 semester in LA7. This will allow you to plan and be prepared each week and give you a plan for your work at home. As a class on the first day, we will discuss and practice how to prepare for each class in order to be successful in language arts which will include looking at this agenda. I will provide them with an example weekly schedule to aid in their transition to secondary course work.
