Grade 6  

ELA for grade 6 is a prodigiously enjoyable time!

Grammar, vocabulary, and writing skills are all being refined.

Reading together new novels of inspiration

is letting our knowledge become quite the sensation!

In accomplishing all of this, God’s light is defined.

Our year is continuing wonderfully. The students have learned and composed a five paragraph essay. We are refining vocabulary, grammar, writing and reading skills as we move on this year. We will continue to practice strategies for evidence based questions. Our first novel, A Wrinkle in Time, is allowing us many opportunities to study literary devices.

Grade 7

ELA for grade 7 is quite a year filled with excitement! Vocabulary, writing, reading are our refinements.

Engaging ourselves with many inspiring novels

is allowing us to gain knowledge that is colossal!

With God guiding us in our work, we are forever enlightened.

We have started our second novella, Animal Farm. Literary devices and figurative language are the focal points as we read this classic book and study the background of this allegory. Our writing and grammar skills will continue to be mastered as we move on this year. Currently, we are proceeding with direct and indirect objects.

Grade 8‚Äč
Lourdes’ grade 8 class is the place to be

as we refine writing, grammar, and our morality.

We are reading a considerable amount of stupendous books,

and doing our work using positive outlooks;

while showing Spirit in vitality!

Currently, we are engaged in completing The Outsiders, our second novel for the year. Literary devices and figurative language will continue to be mastered, as well as our writing skills. The students will compose research based essays on the pop culture of the 1960's in conjunction with the novel. We will progress in mastering our vocabulary, writing, and grammar skills as we move on this year. As we prepare for Confirmation, we will continue to let God's light shine!
