Hey everybody!! School has started!!! YAY!!! This is going to be a great year so let's have a lot of fun!
This week will be a fairly easy week for the kids. 

Monday/Tuesday: We will be going over the syllabus (which needs to be signed by the student as well as the parent/guardian and returned to me) and doing some fun icebreakers to get to know each other.

Wednesday/Friday: We will begin our daily journals. The first journal entry will be - "What are you hoping to learn about this year and why?" We will be reviewing grammar points they should have learned about in 7th grade, while starting new ones: misplaced modifiers, parallelism, and sentence variety. 

Thursday: We will do our second journal entry- "If you could meet one famous person, alive or dead, who would it be and why?" We will be reviewing the grammar we have already covered. As well as working on punctuation (commas with phrases and clauses, semi-colons, and hyphens). Lastly, we will be working on a punctuation handout.

Pretty easy week this week. The journals are designed to get the students writing. They will be collected every two weeks (so collected next week). 

Also, for my remote learners/parents, if you want to see the weekly schedule, it is located in the classwork section of google classroom (the one for remote learners... it will not be in the regular 7A/7B class). It is under "Weekly Schedule."
