Science Invention/Art Fair Week!

Dear Seventh Grade Parents and Students,

It is hard to believe that we are already into March.  Time flies when you are having fun!  Ha! Ha!

We will continue to discuss the Trojan War, as we wait for our next book, The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, to arrive from Barnes and Noble.  Apparently, the books have to come from New York.  Therefore, we will continue our study of poetry.  There is a Literary Terms Test on Tuesday, March 5.  Please encourage your child to study for this test.  Many thanks!

Your child should be working on his/her next writing assignment “Design a Magazine.”  The due date for this assignment is March 28.  Please encourage your child to work on it every night for about thirty minutes.  Thank you!  This week, the cursive books will go home as nightly homework.  Your child must complete two pages per night.  Cursive writing is a skill worth practicing and saving!  I have already seen an improvement in my students’ cursive since we started using these cursive books.  Yahoo!

This week in history, we will prepare for the History Test of Chapter 8, which focuses on the Inca Empire.  The guidelines/notes for this test were distributed to the Seventh Graders last Wednesday.  Please encourage your child to study his/her definitions and notes for the next History Test.  Thank you!

Reminder:  The Invention/Art Fair is on Thursday, March 7, in the McKeon Center, at 6:30p.m.  See you there!

The homework for this week is as follows:

  • Study for the Literary Terms Test of page 15, for Tuesday, March 5.
  • Spelling /vocabulary test of Lesson 20 in Wordly Wise on Thursday.
  • Write fifteen sentences using the vocabulary from Lesson 20 in Wordly Wise.
  • Complete all the exercises of Lesson 20 in Wordly Wise.
  • Complete the CROSSWORD at the end of Lesson 20 in Wordly Wise.
  • Work on the “Magazine Project,” which is due on March 28.
  • Two pages of cursive in the Cursive Book per night.
