Welcome back from Fall break! Students were back in class today and we got right into some important tasks. 9th graders started writing to analyze and interpret sayings in class today. They will start reading literature from the American Romantic literary movement this week. They will work with a group to learn about the characteristics of this movement and to summarize and analyze their readings. 10th graders are starting a literary analysis paper on the Heroic Journey book they finished before Fall break. To help them prepare, we practiced writing quality thesis statements and all 10th graders have an IXL assignment to complete. All students should be finishing their self-selected book at home for the in-class book report on Monday, Dec. 3. Students will hand in their current reading log on this day.
Oasis Academy Student Council will be collecting brand new pajamas for our annual Scholastic Pajama Drive. All pajamas will be donated to local children in need. If you’re able, please donate a new pair of pajamas–we will accept donations through Thursday, December 13th.
