Writing: We continued practicing correctly using quotation marks in dialogue. The students took an assessmenton Thursday. We also practiced using specific word choice to set the mood in writing.
Grammar: We reviewed parts of speech and took an assessment. We also continued practicing the difference between simple, compound and complex sentences. We will take an assessment on this next week.
Projects: We continued working on the 51st state projects.
One more week and then we get the entire week off for Thanksgiving!!
Don't forget, the students are supposed to read 20 minutes every night. Also make sure they are practicing for spelling and Latin/Greek tests. They have time in class, but a little extra practice at home would be great too.
