Today in class the core students started class by editing two sentences. They then took some notes on analyzing a setting. We discussed that setting is more than just the time and place and discussed how it can change a character or even create problems for our characters.

The advanced students edited a paragraph to start class. After going over the starter, we read the short story “The Necklace.” Tomorrow we will start analyzing the setting and the characters deeper.

MAP Testing has started back for the school year! My classes are MAP testing on Wednesday, September 7 and Thursday, September 8. 



  • Read at least 20 minutes of an independent reading book tonight.
