A peek inside our classroom everyday!

Catch up

It seems this flu bug has kept me away from blogging! So sorry about the delay in posting! I’ll try to catch up with today’s post.


  • Scholastic book orders are due TOMORROW! Activation code: L7L3T
  • 8th grade ELA teachers need workers for the Book Fair during the week of Oct 29-31.  If you are available to work either 7:30-11 am or 10:30-2:30 pm-please email me right away with the time(s) you are available.
  • Grades have been updated in the computer.  With the students working on their next formative assessment (pre-test) today, I was finally able to add many grades to the grade book.  The grading period ends this week, so we will be off to a fresh start next Monday.

Class time:

  • Yesterday, we starting practicing with making inferences.  We read some sections on the board and made inferences together as a class.
  • We were also able to take our first class field trip to the library.  Students are able to check out 2 books at a time and renew them as often as needed.  We make our journey every other Monday for the rest of the year.  Students are now expected to have a free reading book with them in class at all times.
  • Finally, we talked about how to remember commas the best.  Since me providing notes and practice will only stay in their brains for a short time–I decided to make the students the teachers.  They are to follow these instructions to complete a comma review.Comma Review  They must show examples and good notes for each of the rules provided.  I also gave them this sample to look at for inspiration. Basic Comma Help
  • Today we took a formative assessment over RI 8.5, RI 8.2, & RL 8.2.

  1. Thank you for putting up the Comma Review paper. I accidentally left it at school.
