The Hobbit

Grades 7/8 have been reading the Hobbit the past few weeks. We are working our way through the book while filling out worksheets. On the worksheets we: summarize the chapter, look up definitions for vocabulary words, answer comprehension questions, and look at discussion questions.

Halloween writing contest

In ELA right now we are writing Halloween stories – both for marks and as a part of a writing contest sponsored by the SCC.

Our topic is: Write a spooky story to tell around the campfire. Remember, you want to build suspense using onomatopoeia and alliteration. Don’t forget to have a big finale to frighten everyone who is listening.

All stories will be submitted to the SCC for judging. The top story from each grade will receive a prize!

Stories are due on Monday, October 23rd and must be typed and printed.

Good luck!

Monkey’s Paw Persuasive Paragraphs

Monkey’s Paw persuasive paragraphs were due today. Students were to write one paragraph in response to the question “Is Mr. White responsible for his son’s death?” Students were expected to give at least three supporting statements and should have strong, opinionated thesis and concluding statements.

 

Enjoy the long weekend!
