Literacy

Welcome!

 I couldn't be more excited to be welcoming the 7th, and 8th graders to the wonderful world of Literacy.  This school year will bring about many wonderful experiences in both reading and writing that I am looking forward to sharing with each and every one of you!

Throughout the year you will each be responsible for independent reading, so be prepared to find books of your choice to read for my class.  These books can be obtained from our classroom library, the public library, our Scholastic monthly book order options, or from your own personal collection.  I look forward to exploring the world of reading with all of you!
 
 The 7th graders will be focusing on the following novels throughout the year in addition to many other short stories and independent books:
   ~The Giver by Lois Lowry (science fiction)
   ~ 
 
 The 8th graders will be focusing on the following novels throughout the year in addition to many other short stories and independent books:
   ~The Pearl by John Steinbeck (parable)
   ~The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton (realistic fiction)
   ~
