With the heat behind us, along with the formalities and uneasiness of getting to know one another and the new schedules, students have been transitioning well into 8th grade. In language arts we have been busy practicing our writing with our daily journals, as well as tackling our first unit, Drama, by covering and connecting with all the elements this genre offers - especially in comparison to the television and films students love to watch.
Starting this week, students will complete their first drama selection, "The Million Pound Bank Note." This radio play by Mark Twain is very enjoyable. Be sure to ask your child how they liked this selection.
