ELA: Reading & Writing week of 08/31

This week our focus in Reading will be on getting reading going and building readerly behaviors. In writing, we will begin the writing process and start immersion in Slice of Life (personal essays) pieces.

Monday/Tuesday this week marks the start of our ongoing reading and writing homework assignments. The expectation are: students read a total of 150 minutes per week, and they must log the pages and minutes in their reading log attached to the inside back cover of their Reading Notebook. This homework will be checked the first time students have ELA class the following week. Writing homework is consistent as well, until further notice. Students are to write one new entry in their Writer’s Notebook. This writing homework is due the class period following.

If you have not finished or turned in your Summer Reading Assignment, get it taken care of. They are due no later than this Friday, September 4.
