Transcript of Welcome to 8th Grade Language Arts

Welcome to 8th Grade Language Arts
Mrs. Ehrlich & Mrs. Vaughan (Block 5/6)
Our Class
Our students know that no matter what, when they step in our door, we are friendly and respectful towards one another, it is our number 1 rule! Your children are catching on quickly. They come in with a smile and they leave with a "thank you" on a daily basis. They are also helping one another and making new friendships. This lifelong skill will be reinforced throughout the year. It has been a great start!

Mini Lessons
A Walk In Our Block
Reading & Writing
Stay Connected
At the start of each class, we start with direct instruction based on past assessments. It could be developing a thesis statement, learning reading strategies, discovering themes in a text, etc. It could also be a review of an earlier mini lesson. Then the students take time to practice.
Each day, the students are reading and writing. It is important that they have a choice novel throughout the year as this will help in their vocabulary development and sentence structure. We will also be exploring different modes of writing. Please look out for the writing portfolios and their choice novels at home!

During independent reading and writing I will be conferring with the students in small strategy groups and one-on-one. During this time, your child is getting either a review or reteaching of the mini lesson, help with writing, a conversation about reading, or at times a way to advance their writing to a higher level. After this guided lesson, they will be sent back to work with the rest of the students.
