Paragraph of the Week
We will discuss this week's paragraph of the week "Something Special" on Monday. The paragraph will be due the following Monday (10/23). Students will receive some time in class to work on their paragraphs. Please refer to the 7th Writing home page to see a guideline on how students can remain on track so as not to fall behind.
The chapter 2 test on nouns will be on Wednesday, October 18. Students will complete a practice test in preparation for this chapter test. We will go over the practice test together. Students should study their handouts and the practice test to prepare for the test. If your child would like extra practice, pages 38, 40, 43, 46, 48-49, and 52-53 would be a great review!
Reminder: The memoir draft is DUE: Monday, Oct. 16. Students received time in class to work on this piece of writing.
