Week of October 30th

This week marks the end of Marking Period 1. Our bell schedule will be adjusted on Wednesday to allow for students to receive their new Marking Period 2 schedules in homeroom. Elective classes that rotate on a 9-week cycle will begin fresh on Wednesday. All English students will remain in the same class throughout the year. Marking Period 1 report cards will be sent home next week.

This week we are going to finish our work with verbs and adverbs. Overall, I was very pleased with our nouns test last week and I want to make sure we don't forget that information. To that end, we will have a test on verbs, adverbs, and nouns this Friday, November 3. This test will count toward your Marking Period 2 average.

Homework
Monday- Review action verbs (things you do with your body)
Tuesday- Review action verbs (things you do with your mind)
Wednesday- Review adverbs (words that describe verbs and answer the questions How? When? and How much?)
Thursday- Study nouns, verbs, and adverbs for test tomorrow (use guided notes and practice packets)
Friday- Read something you enjoy for at least 20 minutes



English 8
This week we are going to review verbs and adverbs. You will have a test on nouns, pronouns (from last week), verbs and adverbs at the end of this week and you should begin preparing early. It is very important that you can identify and know how to correctly use nouns and verbs because they are the 2 most important parts of a sentence. Without a noun or a verb, a sentence is not complete. My hope is that we can eliminate all fragments (incomplete sentences) from our writing before we do our next writing assignment!

Homework
Monday- review all nouns and pronouns
Tuesday- review verbs (mind and body)
Wednesday- Review adverbs (words that describe verbs and answer the questions How? When? and How much?)
Thursday- Student nouns, pronouns, verbs and adverbs (use guided notes and practice packets)
Friday- Read something you enjoy for at least 30 minutes
