Week of 8/13/18 to 8/17/18

Thank you to everyone that brought their supplies and a Big Thank You to all that brought extra supplies for the classroom. We have completed taking the Reading Inventory and a writing baseline. Students discussed “Mind Set” and how we go about setting goals for this school year. We have also reviewed the Writing Process and practiced classroom (group) rotations.

This weeks focus in Reading is making connections and building background knowledge. In ELA we will review different Narrative writings, looking at topic sentences, transitions, formulating paragraphs, concluding sentences as well as parts of speech.

Make it a Great Week.  🙂

Week of 5/21/18

It’s that time again to say good bye to the school year and hello to Summer. Students have made tremendous progress with the Reading 180 program. To maintain skills I suggest reading everyday for about 30 minutes and keeping a journal to summarize the main ideas. It’s been a pleasure teaching all of you and I look forward to continuing my role next year for students that are moving to 7th and 8th grade. To my 8th graders that are moving on to high school, I wish you all the best and expect to hear great things in the weeks and months to come.

My Best Regards,

Mrs. Ramsey
