8th Grade Literacy
The Independent Reading Project will be due on November 30th. Students should be actively reading their fiction novels and completing their journal entries. Every Wednesday I will be giving class time to complete 1 journal entry. Remember....there are multiple parts to this project. All work can be found on our Google Classroom.
Learning Ally letters have been sent home. Please review and if there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
**All students have been given instructions to log into the app as well as their user names and passwords. If you have questions, please email me.**
SSR (silent sustained reading) will take place on a weekly basis in class. Students should have a book with them at all times. If they do not have their book, they will be required to log into Learning Ally to choose an audiobook. Aside from reading in class, students should be reading at home for at least 20 minutes per day.
