Welcome to 7th and 8th Grade Language Arts!
We've done it! We've made it to the end!
I would like to wish everyone a Happy Summer Break!
Please don't forget to do your summer reading!
Summer is quickly approaching! Research tells us that students need to read during the summer to maintain their independent reading levels. In the fall, the impact of a student not having read during the summer months, combined with the fact that many of his or her classmates did read during the summer, may result in a reading ability gap that could potentially widen each year, making it difficult for students to keep up with grade level reading expectations.
Students will be required to read 2 books over the summer. The students will be required to do a book report on each book by early September that will count as a major grade. Students need to read carefully and take notes if needed to remember what they have read. Some of the books are lengthy so please do not wait until the last minute!
Please buy the paperback versions of the books if possible because we will be working on these books during the year in class.
