Language Arts

The State Reports are due on Monday, March 16, 2020. I have attached the requirements of the power point slides and rubric (point values for each slide) and grading scale below (you may click on the link to open it up and print it at home, if you wish). Each student will be required to present their power point to the class, beginning next week and will also be given a “speaking grade” and “listening grade” (as an audience member) during presentation times.

Each student has their own spelling list for the week and a Spelling Contract to be completed in the week, which consists of daily assignments utilizing their spelling lists.  The contract (assignments) consists of doing ABC Order for their list, writing each word in a sentence, and then 2–4 more assignments of the student’s choice (as long as the 2-4 assignments total to 40 points).   A test will then be given on their lists on each Friday, unless otherwise waived by myself.Each student should be reading every night, a book of choice, for a minimal time of 30 minutes per night.  Students may use Moby Max program to read for their 30 minutes.  Students may have other homework each night, but it will be recorded in their planners as given on a day-to-day basis.  They will not always have other homework every night for ELA.
