Hello! We have so enjoyed getting to know all of the new Gnomes and am excited about a new school year!
I like to give a quick language arts update on this site each week to let students and parents know what they can anticipate in the week ahead.
This week, we will spend the first couple of days getting to know Language Arts procedures. From there, we will learn what it means to be an active listener by doing our Swag Bag activity. On Wednesday of this week, students will have a chance to practice their presentation skills and their active listening skills through Swag Bag presentations. By the end of the week, we will dive in to Unit 1 material with an introduction to The Hero’s Journey.
Students copy language arts homework for the entire week in their agenda each Monday, but we also post it on this website under the Team Calendar tab.
We are looking forward to a wonderful year and hope this week becomes a week of smooth transition for all! 🙂
