Reminder: Do a little bit at a time. Memories made over long period of time with stick with you longer. Practice until you cannot get the topic wrong; not until you get it right.

Due July 19:
Detailed corrections to all problems you initially solved incorrectly on the practice test are to be handed in.
For reading comprehension, write the line where you can find the answer. For math, write out all work. For vocabulary, write a synonym (the lexicon that was emailed to your parents groups many synonyms together). For grammar, write the rule or how you can recognize it easier in the future. If you write the main verb of the sentence, you will receive credit. For abilities, write the rule or pattern.
Word Choice - Who vs Whom
It's vs its - Any pronoun with an apostrophe should be said as a contraction, NOT possessive.

Due July 31:
Another reading comprehension, math, and grammar packet due

Due August 1:


Due October:
Thorough corrections from your practice test must be handed in.
You should not only write the answer, but also explain the rule or how you can get it correct in the future. For math, all work should be written out. For reading comprehension, the line or lines where the answer can be found should be written. For abilities, you should write the rule for the similarity or pattern.
