100% papers from our last grammar test. As you can see, the 9th grade really shines! This week we'll have our second grammar test and I hope the perfect scores will double if not triple in all grades. :D The grammar test will be on Thursday.
You may have heard that the 6th grade is not allowed to use Chromebooks in class. Unfortunately, the computers have proved to be too much of a distraction to the students so I've suspended their use until further notice. There's nothing wrong with the old-fashioned paper & pencil way and I believe there is more genuine learning being accomplished.
This week the 6th/7th grade will begin Freak the Mighty, the 9th/10th grade will start 1984 and the 11th/12th class will delve into The Scarlet Letter. These novel studies should all last through the month of October and hopefully we'll do something special for Halloween. :)
Also this week the 11th/12th grade class will receive their first vocabulary list and will have a test next week. The words come from the students: as they read, they mark words they haven't heard before and that makes up the vocabulary list. Much better than me assuming I know which words might give them problems.
Have a wonderful week!
