Home stretch!

Students took their final test of the year for ELA! Those who missed it can make it up tomorrow. They can either make it up in the morning, or they can take it in class. We will be listening to the audiobook over the next few days. Students need to bring their completed journals tomorrow, but other than that they just need to bring themselves.

Tangerine Test Two Tomorrow!

Students have a test over Tangerine tomorrow. The test covers pages 112 – 185 in the book (or Wednesday, September 20 – Wednesday, November 8). It will also cover vocabulary and characters. Please see below for the answer key for the review questions, the vocabulary quizlet, questions from previous classes, and the crossword answer key. I will be here early tomorrow for any students who want to come in and use the books or ask questions. This is our last test for the year. I feel confident everyone can ace it!
