The students will take a pre-test on Daily Academic Vocabulary Week 2 words on Wednesday. We are finishing our study on homonyms, and we will focus on studying parts of speech and testing on pattern one of the Shurley Method. Next week the students will be given a Shurley Folder that they will use for instruction for the rest of the year. Next week I will send home a copy of all of the DAV words for the year. Google Classroom will be used extensively for assignments. Your child can show you his/her work and progress in that utility.
Books and guidelines will be given the first week of school.
Students interested in serving on Safety Patrol, The Immanuel Cancer Fighters, or helping with a new project called AnySoldier - info will come out the first week.
Safety Patrol training meeting will be Monday 8/13/18.
You can check out the webpages for each of these activities on our school page (under the essential tab).
