I am pretty proud of myself for waiting three whole weeks before I start preparring for the upcoming school year...typically I only last a week
I have however thought about what I wanted to do for next year, but today is the first day were I have sat down and created a game plan for this upcoming school year
The plan as of now is to have individual file folders for each student to hold various notes
Literary Elements & Devices
8th graders already have a file folder of their writing where they are keeping track of their progress in writing an essay
The purpose of these file folders is to create a reference for students to look back on through out the year. I am hoping that these resources will increase students reading comprehension and writing.
I am also considering having students have a two subject notebook for journal entries and vocabulary words
