Accelerated Reader Appreciation Happy Friday! I would like to take a moment today to celebrate each of you. I know the adjustment to middle school has not been an easy one for all of you, but I think for the most part you should be really proud of how far you've come and how awesome you've already proven yourselves to be. Simply: You're Awesome!
You know who is especially awesome? The students who are already racking up reading points in Accelerated Reader! The readers features below are already making measurable progress towards their reading goals. Keep up the great work and keep reading!
Analyzing Characters in 'Dear Future' Today we are going to continue the short story "Dear Future." Our focus will be on analyzing the character of James, as we track his changing attitudes about growing up from the beginning of the story to the end. We will also consider the question: What causes James's attitude to change? Once again, you can find a copy of the story "Dear Future" in your Language Arts folders (and a link to it here). The 'Analyzing Characters' assignment was placed in your folders and a link to it can be found here. (This assignment will be due Friday of next week.)
Homework Make sure you read for 30 minutes at least once over the weekend and make an entry on your Digital Reading Log. (Remember that your reading log has been placed in your Language Arts folders. If for some reason you need to make a copy of the reading log, you can find a link to it here.) I will be grading this week's Reading Log on Monday, September 8.
