A Great Start, 7th Graders!

Dear Seventh Grade Parents and Students,

The Seventh Graders have settled back nicely into their Middle School routines. I am happy to report that they scored extremely high on their spelling/vocabulary test on Thursday.  I am so proud of them! Keep up the great work, Seventh Graders!

This past week, my Seventh Graders continued to read Beowulf by Robert Nye.  In addition to this, the Seventh Graders started work in class, in the new grammar workbooks.   This past week, I read aloud two myths and two legends.  This coming week, I will read more myths and legends to them, in preparation for their first writing assignment, Write a Myth or Legend, which will be due on Thursday, September 25.

We continued our social studies program with the study of Japan.  The first History Test will take place on Tuesday, September 23.  Please encourage your child to study for it.  Many thanks!

The following is the homework for this coming week:

  • Spelling/vocabulary test of Lesson 2 in Wordly Wise on Thursday, September 18.
  • Complete all the exercises in Lesson 2 of Wordly Wise for Thursday.
  • Study the definitions and questions/answers in your history notebooks, in preparation for the History Test, on Tuesday, September 23.

Books are the bees which carry the quickening pollen from one to another mind. ~ James Russell Lowell (American poet and editor)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and have a GRAND week ahead.
