Hello 8th Grade Families,

Today, we started class by reviewing the first 5 words in the Sadlier Vocabulary Unit 1 series. We moved onto the next 5 words and checked our understanding on yesterday's words. Afterwards, we read more from The Outsiders. We recapped yesterday's discussion regarding the differences and similarities between Dally and Darry. We also talked about Johnny and made text to text connections. We made a connection with the JT's mother in The Lions of Little Rock and Johnny's mother. The 8th graders were trying to come up with reasons why Johnny's mother stays silent to the abuse that Johnny receives. 

Best,
Mrs. Baier
