Beginning Oct. 3 students will be using Spelling/Grammar workpages to practice the skills taught in class. There will no longer be spelling words to study for the week. After discussing the issue of so many students at levels ranging from first grade to high school, the administrators and I have combined writing with focus/details/spelling/grammar linked to students daily journal writings. Attached is the grading guide for each student. userfiles/1074/Journal Writing Rubric.doc
TEST EVERY FRIDAY using verb tense, captial letters, punctuation,comma usage, titles, plurals, and spelling.
