7th Grade LA

Seventh grade has been busily working in the three areas of language arts – composition, grammar, and vocabulary.

They spent some time composing a descriptive essay on a historic place of their choice.  Hopefully, students learned that writing is a detailed process that takes time rather than something that they attempt to complete as soon as possible.

In grammar, we have completed Unit 8, which focuses specifically on subjects, predicates, and sentences.

Lastly, we began the month of October with Unit 1 vocabulary.  Acquiring strong vocabulary skills is imperative in students becoming better writers, as well as preparing them to be successful on their standardized tests.
