8th GRADE LEARNING ZONE - ELA & SS

This year is starting out great! The students are respectful, responsible, and ready to learn. They come to class prepared and ready to participate. The ELA students started the year with Book Buddies. They chose a novel & decide what pages they are going to read every night. They also work on characterization & parts of speech activities together during class using their novel. Knowing the 50 states is important, so the SS students are using the Geography link on this website to study. Hopefully they will show improvement from their pretest from the first day of school. Each child is encouraged to have a learning goal to work on for each quarter. They need to be invested in their learning.
