This week in Mrs. Toal's class 11/26-11/30

This week in Mrs. Toal's LA class;


We will continue to start each class with our daily warm-up to continue with grammar, spelling, punctuation, and
mechanics.

The students received their Unit 7 vocabulary words today. (they weren't very happy!) Homework is due Thursday and
their quiz will be Friday.

We started our new unit today. We will be reading "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" by Mark Twain. Today we
viewed a biography video of Mark Twain and listed 10 facts about this fascinating author. This unit will take us up to
winter break and some weeks following the break. We will be reading the novel in class, and there will be a project
due at the end of the unit. I will send information home about this at a later date.

Many students still have yet to turn in their personal narratives. If they don't turn this in, it will reflect their 2nd marking period grade. Please be sure to check your son or daughters eschool account to see how their grades are throughout
the marking period.
Today we had the 8th-grade assembly. Mrs. Douglas pointed out many school rules that have been giving our
students trouble. We hope this assembly will get our students on track.
Ms. Rush spoke about our 8th-grade trip that will be on an invite-only basis. We will be heading to Hershey Park in
May. The students' behavior has to be in good standing in order to be invited. Please encourage them to follow our
school rules, so they can enjoy this most exciting time of their 8th-grade year!!!!
As always if you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me.
Here's to a good week!!!
