Dear parents and guardians,
Can you believe we have two and a half weeks left in the second quarter? This first have of the year has flown. I am currently grading companion books. They average four pages, so it will take me a longer to grade them. Thank you for all your encouragement and help with your children in making sure they completed their books.
Our second quarter is ending with literature analysis. Although very similar to the informational writing, this type of writing really focuses on making a claim, proving it with evidence, and explaining why your claim is valid and true. It is a nice transition into third quarter argument writing.
Students will be doing a vocabulary study this week, so every day this week there will be vocabulary homework as well as writing class work that focuses on literature analysis.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
Mrs. Becky Leffler
