Hello 8th Grade Families,
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I just wanted to take a few minutes to explain a few things that will be going on in our 8th grade ELA class. 

  • The 8th graders were given a print out (from the Sadlier website) of the Unit 1 words. I'm hoping this will help the 8th graders study for next Friday's test. When the workbooks come in I will distribute them to each student. This is to be used as a study tool, but should not have any writing in it. 
  •  I am going to implement a schedule that will hopefully alleviate some stress from the 8th graders. I'm trying very hard to make it where the 8th graders are not taking a vocabulary and spelling test the same day they take a grammar test. As of right now the weeks will alternate. For example: next Friday they 8th graders are taking their Unit 1 vocabulary and spelling test. The following Friday will be their grammar test and so on and so forth. 
Best,
Mrs. Baier
