WELCOME TO THE SILVER TEAM ENGLISH A CLASS!
I am so happy that we will be learning together this year as part of the
SILVER TEAM FAMILY. We will be reading books, sharing our thoughts and
opinions in both discussions and writing, giving book talks to each other,
visiting the media center, learning many new vocabulary words,drawing
pictures,researching a variety of topics of your choice, playing games, having
celebrations,winning prizes and helping each other learn and grow throughout
Homework is an important part of learning and a reinforcement of the reading
skills and reading strategies we learn and practice each day.
As always ,the best way to improve reading comprehension and vocabulary
development is by reading. Your homework for every night remains the same.
READ,READ,READ,READ,READ,READ,READ,READ,READ,EVERY NIGHT FOR 20-30 MINUTES.
Homework reading may not be done during the school day, but only after the
school day has ended. The best way to become a better reader and learn new
vocabulary is to READ,READ,READ!
When you have other homework, that is,studying for vocabulary quizzes or
projects I will put them on the white board and on this website.
Please bring your SSR book (Sustained Silent Reading Book otherwise
known as your Independent Reading Book) to Homeroom and to English A class
every day. Please remember to have a "back up book" with you when you near
the end of the book you are reading.
Once again, I am so happy to be one of your teachers this year and to be able
to share this great adventure called "middle school" with you!
Please,please,please ask me for help or anything you need.
See you in school!
