Our Encore class recently finished reading Freedom Walkers: The Story of the Montgomery Bus Boycott by Russell Freedom. Students created videos to represent individuals and organizations important to the boycott.
For families on the go, the new textbook adoption has an app for our textbook. Feel free to download the Study Sync app to provide students access to the textbook while you are out and about. It is much easier than carrying around a hard copy.
Students have started the "Daily Language Instruction" assignments. These include four lessons of grammar per week. Some weeks we will spend 10 minutes per class period working on DLI while other weeks we will dedicate one class period per week to work on grammar. DLI quizzes will take place on Fridays.
Students may use their previous worksheets as notes during the quiz.
It is important for students to keep all of their DLI worksheets throughout the entire year as these lessons build off of each other.
Students should be recording their homework at the beginning of each class period. Please check your child's binder reminder to make sure they are keeping up with recording homework on a regular basis.
