Hello 8th Grade Families,

Today, we started class by reviewing the first 5 words in the Sadlier Vocabulary Unit 1 series. We came up with ways to remember the words. Afterwards, we moved onto reading The Outsiders. We talked about the characters Dally and Darry. We discussed that even though their names sound similar and they are both tough, both characters share different moral codes. Dally toes the line between being a hood and being a greaser, and he's: reckless, and careless. Then there's Darry who is a responsible father figure. He works hard and focuses on working his two jobs and taking care of his brothers. 

Best,
Mrs. Baier
