In the next few months, we'll be delving into informational text and the many styles of writing that make up this genre. Students will analyze how writers use text features and text structure, explore the impact of diction, create Yelp! reviews, and design reference books. They will also look at the way audience influences an author's writing style. 

Parents, you can help your child finish the year strong by continuing to check homework and encouraging the use of PowerSchool.  Both you and your child can use PowerSchool to stay up to date on grades,  see what work has been turned in, and what work is still outstanding.

Additional assistance in Language Arts is offered Thursdays from 2:35-3:20.
