Hello 8th Grade Families,

Today we worked on Passive and Active Voice. The 8th graders did a good job with their exercise, which asked them to correct sentences and defend sentences that used passive voice. 

I explained that our next novel will be Night by Elie Wiesel. This is a powerful memoir from the Holocaust. I look forward to having deep conversations with both groups to really understand what the novel contains. I explained that if any student is unable to purchase the book by Monday they should e-mail me no later than Saturday. I will buy the book, which is about $6; however, if I purchase it then the book will belong to my library and the student may not write in it. If any student would like me to purchase it for them that would be fine they would just have to let me know no later than Saturday and bring the money in on Monday.
