Welcome to 8th Grade Reading/Language Arts!


I am so glad to have your child in my reading class this year!


This year is all about improving reading skills and learning ways that authors use writing to communicate.  I will be offering tutorials every Monday after school. 


Ways that you can help:


Reading EVERY NIGHT 30 mins or more.


Homework in my class will most likely be reading in their library/AR book for 30 mins and putting to independent practice the skill we learned from our daily mini-lesson


Students are expected to read at least 5 days a week to be successful in my classroom.

Here are my expectations for every student in my 8th grade classes.


Read, READ, READ! **


Work your Plan- This is the plan your child created for this school year to grow and be successful during this new school year.


Be respectful to the teacher and other students.


Work cooperatively daily to ensure that you are growing and completing assignments.

Be polite

Be positive
