Writing Skills for 7th Grade

Period 1 (8:30 - 10:00 a.m.)

Whether you’re a strong writer or you desire to improve your writing and critical thinking skills, you will get plenty of support and practice in this engaging, activity-based course! Each week, students will address a different mode of writing (i.e. expository, argumentative, narrative, descriptive) using the skills learned. Students will create an Interactive Writing Skills Notebook aligned to Grade 7 Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The focus of the class is on structured skills and strategies which produce clear, organized, exemplary writing. Students will practice responding to prompts and claims, citing examples to support arguments, and much more! The Interactive Writing Skills Notebook that each student produces will be a valuable reference guide for use in middle school and beyond.

 

Study Skills for Success!

Period 2 (10:15 - 11:45 a.m.)

Establishing effective study habits is critical to a student’s success in school.  This class will cover a variety of strategies that will help you boost your grades and set you up for academic success!  Some of the topics that will be covered in this class are time management, note-taking, goal setting and prioritizing, paper organization, test preparation, test-taking strategies, homework and project planning, and memorization techniques . just to name a few!  Lessons are taught in a fun, engaging, and interactive manner.  The skills you gain in this class will positively impact your life - both inside and outside the classroom!

Assignment

 
 
Dear Parents and Students,
 
Welcome to HMS!  What a great start we've had!  Although students were attentive listeners, your child may come home feeling overwhelmed with the amount of information given to him/her today.  Please reassure your student that teachers will review procedures repeatedly over the next few weeks.  Encourage them to ask questions and seek help when needed.  My goal is for all students to feel safe and comfortable in their new learning environment.  I am already impressed with this group of 6th graders, and I know it will be a rewarding, positive, and successful year for all!
 
Please begin gathering school supplies.  You should have all supplies by Monday, August 20th.

 
Reminders
Please remember that students are not allowed in school hallways
prior to the 7:54 a.m. bell.  Thank you for your cooperation!
