Reading 7th and 8th

The year is off to a great start with its first emphasis on vocabulary. Students were put into groups and presented their choice of song, soap opera or commercial using several of the vocabulary words from the first unit. Students are also working on their assessments from their summer reading. Eighth graders compared the distressed characters from two novels: Trouble by Gary D. Schmidt and The Diary of Anne Frank. Seventh graders read Black Duck by Janet Taylor Lisle and learned about the mysteries that lie behind the Prohibition Era. An autobiography of their choice will be used to develop character thoughts and emotions. Both grades are moving toward a recap of literary elements and development of new skills.

English 8th

Eighth graders are getting comfortable journaling and working with motivational videos and pictures to connect to their faith and morals. They are working with nouns and pronouns grammatically and have begun descriptive writing in class. Each student will be choosing an object, take its perspective and write a descriptive piece based on the senses it encounters.  These pieces will be on display for Open House.
