LA Update

Good afternoon! Quick update on language arts:

We will be writing our literary analysis on Langston Hughes’s short story, Thank you, Ma’am, this week. Students will begin planning in the graphic organizer on Google Classroom tomorrow if they have not begun that already. Final copies of the literary analysis are due this Friday.

There is another roots quiz this week, so we will go through the same format as the past two weeks. There are a couple of small homework assignments to get the kids familiar with the roots, and there is a Quizlet in Classroom as well. So far, everyone is doing really well with words.

Lastly, students should continue completing Ready Theory quizzes during the week. I’m asking that students take at least 3 quizzes per week. We will set some goals regarding Ready Theory later in the week, so ask your students about their goals!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
