Language Arts Homework Reminders - 6th, 7th, 8th

All Grade Levels - 6th/7th/8th

Vocabulary homework is due EVERY Friday! Two items from your grade level Vocabulary Menu, labeled as shown on the menu. Every other Friday there will be a quiz on the definitions of the words. (Vocabulary Menus should be kept in your KEEP ALL YEAR sheet protector, and can be found on the "Vocabulary" blog on this web page.)

Independent Reading
All students should have an approved (by parent and Mrs. Hull) silent reading book that should be read at least four nights a week, for at least 15 minutes per night, and for the first 10 minutes of study hall on Mondays and Wednesdays. 

Book Project #3 (Finished book, project, and typed reflection, ready to be presented) is due on March 27th! Use the Non-Fiction Book Project Reflection Directions!

(Book Project Menus should be kept in your KEEP ALL YEAR sheet protector, and can be found on the "Independent Reading" blog on this web page.)

Book Project 3 with reflection due March 27th - BIOGRAPHY/AUTOBIOGRAPHY

For our 3rd Book Project this year, you will pick a biography or autobiography to read. Take notes on the key details of the person's life. You will then use the "NON-FICTION book project reflection directions" to type up the reflection for this project. Use the "Independent Reading blog" on the Mrs. Hull Web page to find the papers related to this project. For the project, you will use your menu, but you will have to adapt the directions to a non-fiction book. Please ask Mrs. Hull ahead of time if you need assistance in doing this. The book project and reflection is due on March 27th.
