Welcome Hippos!
I am so glad that you have visited the class webpage! I hope that you will find the information on the site helpful both as a resource for a student or an informational source for a parent or guardian.
 
What's Going On Now in Room 704? 
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! Starting in January, we will be completing a "writing bootcamp" of sorts, reviewing and practicing important writing and revision/editing skills. We will also start our Poetry Unit in January.
 
Students fill in their planners daily with the agenda and homework. Planner information should be current. Students are given time each day upon arrival to fill in their planner for the day. 
 

Before/After School Corrections:

Students are encouraged to come in before school Fridays or after school on Mondays and Wednesdays as necessary to receive help with any assignment. All quizzes, tests, and assignments that they did not pass from the week before may be corrected. Graded work is generally passed back out to students on Mondays. Corrections must be done by the end of the day Friday. Students are able to correct their Article of the Week assignment at home for Forbidden List errors, as long as it is complete by Friday's due date. To correct the AOW assignment, students must follow ruled on Forbidden List handout and the how-to given in class.
