• Welcome to Our Class
    Welcome to English Language Arts 7th grade.  We will be using EL Education for our new Language Arts Curriculum.  You will need to have your Student Workbook as well as some highlighters (blue, green, yellow and pink) and sticky notes.   We will have a anchor text with each of the Modules as well as related informational texts.  This class covers all areas of English Language Arts including Reading, Writing, Vocabulary, and Grammar.  
    I am using Google Classroom for daily announcements and for useful links.  Students will always have up-to-date information on what is happening in the classroom and what classwork or homework may be due.  From time to time students may even submit classwork or homework on Google Classroom.  Each class period will have its own Google Classroom code. 
    Please always feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
