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!
We will also continue talking about what is going on in the world. Your child will be able to discuss current events with you at the dinner table. We will read about the news and write about the news. There is always something going on in the world.
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!
