We were graciously given a donation for a class set, year long subscription to the Scholastic SCOPE magazines. I have really enjoyed using them in class for a variety of different purposes.
We have been very writing focused in class lately. I have seen such a huge improvement in their writing since the 1st semester! We are also currently working on comma usage, combining sentences, paragraph flow, transitions, and fragments.
The STAAR Writing test will be 3/28, a week after we get back from Spring Break. We will continue working on revising/editing skills and expository writing to be fully prepared!
