7th Grade Literature

The students have just finished reading Diary of a Young Girl: Anne Frank. We will watch the film version from 1956 that is based on the Broadway production. The students will be expected to tell me of any differences they spot within the dramatization of the book.

For the remainder of April, the students will do their Anne Frank Socratic Seminar questions and answers. I look forward to seeing good class discussions in both my classes.

I want to start by thanking everyone for their well-wishes and their patience during my unexpected week off in January.  That wasn’t supposed to happen until February, but our baby girl had other plans!

Our seventh graders have been practicing their research writing skills by using a research quizlet.  The topic is on key figures of the Civil Rights movement.  They will also be presenting their personal projects in the upcoming weeks.

We are winding down our murder mystery And Then There Were None! The students will begin their nine paragraph character study paper on February 15, with the final copy being due on March 3rd.

We will begin our next book at the tale end of February and leading into March. Our next book is Anne Frank’s Diary of a Young Girl.

7th Grade Literature

This 7th Graders are slowly wading into the mystery of Agatha Christie’s best selling novel  And Then There Were None.

Along with answering more in depth and critical thinking questions than before, the students are assigned one character to take notes on and create a character study.

Their nine paragraph essay will explain the quirks, ideas, and possible motives of their character.

7th Grade Language Arts

After a restful Christmas break, our seventh graders have started 2017 eager to learn.  We have been in the process of covering Unit 11 in our grammar text books.  This particular unit focuses on pronouns.  I encourage students to take their corrected exercises home with them each night to review.  Remember, students are offered the opportunity to improve their test scores if they are subpar.  Please refer to the first newsletter of the year for directions on that.  Seventh graders will also be finishing their personal projects in the next weeks.  I am very much looking forward to seeing their creativity on display!

Seventh Grade Language Arts

Greetings,

Our Seventh Graders are in the process of wrapping up Unit 9, which focuses on nouns.  The test will be on October 19th.  Please make sure that students are reviewing their exercises and studying for the test.  In addition to that, I would like to remind everyone to check the syllabus that is found in the first newsletter of the year.  It provides directions for students to earn credit on tests that they have not passed.  I hope to see more students take advantage of that opportunity should they need to.

As always, let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Seventh graders gave impressive presentations on their memoirs from summer break.  They wrote descriptive narratives of their experiences and revealed the lessons that they learned from them.  We are now covering Unit 8 in our grammar textbooks which focuses on sentences, subjects, and predicates.  Students should expect a test late next week.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Welcome 7th Graders!

SeventhGradeLanguageArts

I’m looking forward teaching the current group of seventh graders!  I recognize some of them from being on the other end of the hallway, and I taught some of their brothers and sisters last year.  Seventh graders will only see me for Language Arts.  We will be covering grammar, vocabulary, and composition.  By learning the various skills that each of these areas offer, students will continue to improve and grow as writers.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have.  We will make this a worthwhile and enjoyable year!
