Hello 7th Grade Families,

Today we had a double period (YAY!) and were able to cover all of the new words in Vocabulary Unit 1, a character trait/evidence review of Friday's book: A Dance Like Starlight by: Kristy Demspsey, a discussion on Themes found in the book (love, family, sacrifice, diversity), and further discussion regarding how the antagonist would be MAN vs SOCIETY due to the topic of segregation. We were able to end class with a very brief review of common and proper nouns. Our grammar lessons will start off with a review of the  Parts of Speech. It is extremely important that the 7th graders are solid with this topic before we move forward. 

The 7th graders did an EXCELLENT job! 

Best,
Mrs. Baier
