Eighth graders are truly going to enjoy their last year at St. Rose of Lima! Fun-filled activities throughout the year will make it a memorable one. In my class, they will once again read exciting books, and I will send them off with an 'impeccable' vocabulary. We will fine tune their writing skills and prepare them for high school!
What else will we be learning?
Poems & Poets
Vocabulary (5 old/5 new) - frontloading of words found in the literature we read
Discuss novels read in class
Elements of Fiction
~Character, Setting, Theme, Point of View, Tone, Style
~Metaphor, Simile, Hyperbole, Onomatopoeia, etc.
And so much more!
