English Plus grade 7 students have made great progress .
In Spelling, we have been learning how to spell words with vowels: a , e, i, o, u. words with pefixes: ap, as, ac, af, at, endings: ion, ation. Then we also learnt how to spell words with French and Latin origin. It wasn’t easy, but this group of boys rose to the challenge.
In Grammar we are making nice progress, simple, compound and complex sentences are thought. We learnt how to capitalize, write business letters, address envelopes, punctuate and contractions.
In Language Arts class we just finished our „Travel” section. This section consisted of reports on a favorite city, sights to visit, foods, customs. Presentations were given on each topic and as a conclusion, the students designed their own travel brochure. Mike Lupica: Million-dollar throw, is the book that we will read next.

English Plus grade 8 students have had a very good and dynamic trimester .

As it is a small class this year, it allows for flexibility and variety, and we have been fortunate to be able to work from a wide range of challenging instructional material. The rather advanced level of the students’ English knowledge has enabled them to take part in debates and discussions on various topics, as well as to produce high quality written work in form of essays: descriptive, persuasive, or narrative pieces of writing. In spelling and vocabulary, we have been concentrating on sophisticated challenge words , their meanings and how to use them in speech and writing, whereas in grammar, we have been learning about idioms, analogies, and parts of speech. The students have also been able to work individually or in pairs and present a report or an interview. Furthermore, we are due to start our reading project for this year, „Going Solo” by Roald Dahl, and are really looking forward to it.
In conclusion, all is well in our 8th grade class, and I hope we will have a productive, dynamic and exciting school year!

1st grade….what a busy start to the year we have had. The children have been learning consonant sounds and short vowel sounds and that the vowels and consonants make words. The children have taken home spelling words and have had spelling tests. They have been reading lots of different books that they take home each night. And they have learnt that a story has a beginning, middle and an end. They have also learnt that a sentence is a complete thought and it begins with a capital letter and ends with a period.
   We are reading Dinosaurs Before Dark by Mary Pope Osborne. The children have learnt lots of interesting facts about dinosaurs….that there were canivores and hebivores. If you listen carefully you can hear dinosaurs stompping around the room!!!!!!

English Plus 5th grade students have had an enthusiastic and dynamic start of this school year!
 We have been busy learning and improving our spelling skills and have made it a point of learning new and challenging spelling words every week. The class has also been doing vocabulary work as our goal is to acquire new vocabulary knowledge and understand the meanings of new words and expressions, as well as how to use them in speech and writing. Furthermore, we have been working on the students’ writing skills by practicing written self-expression in their weekly journal entries, which sometimes includes making comics and acting out skits. In grammar, the 5th graders have been practicing different kinds of sentences, verb tenses, and agreement. Finally, we have started reading the book that we are all excited about: BFG by Roald Dahl, which promises to be a lot of fun for all.
Overall, everything is going well and according to plan, and I hope that this school year will prove to be a successful, fun and exciting learning experience!
