The above link will take you to my weekly lesson plans. Please
be aware that these may change as I adjust the lessons to the individual classes.
I offer extra credit for keeping a planner. A student earns one extra credit point for each day they fill out their planner completely. A student can earn up to 25 extra credit points per marking period.
There is ongoing homework each day. Students are encouraged to read at least 10 minutes per day outside of school.
ELA 8th grade
This year 8th graders will start with poetry. We will be reading and writing poetry for several weeks and concluding the unit by writing a narrative poem.
We will start the year by looking at short stories and learning specific grammar skills such as types of sentences, complex and compound sentences, and prepositions.
