This week students will begin taking their ELA Milestones Tests. 8th grade students will test on Monday and Tuesday, 7th grade will be testing Wednesday and Thursday. We strongly encourage that students eat a healthy breakfast and come to school well rested, so they can better focus on each test section.
During the days students are not testing, our IEL class will be working on a Figurative Language Project, which they will complete in class. They will identify different types of figurative language in a variety of texts. This week we will focus on personification, onomatopoeia, simile and metaphor. This project will be due next Friday, April 26th.
Animals in their Natural Habitat
Students in our IEL Communication class continue to study different animal species. They will be practicing comprehension skills as they read a series of articles about animals from Asia. They will read, discuss and complete activities on articles about The Snow Leopard, The Giant Panda and The Snub-nosed Monkey.
