Vocabulary--Units are completed independently over a 2 week span, with the last day of the second week being a test day. Parts of units are assigned in chunks, and students should be writing due dates for each section in their planners.

English--We are doing an intense review on the usage of commas and other punctuation and using what we have learned in writing. Our next area of study will be verbs.

Literature--Elements of plot and characterization are two areas we will be focusing on during the first quarter. We will be reading a few stories in our literature book before reading a novel.
