Welcome to Mrs. Hager's Eighth Grade English Language Arts website.
Welcome to eighth grade!
I am excited to meet all of my new students this year as we embark on a year full of high expectations, progressive development, and celebrated successes. Eighth graders will experience many learning opportunities as we study diverse texts. Maturity, responsibility, and growth are nurtured in a respectful environment as we delve into our studies to develop as readers, writers, communicators, and contributors to our community. Preparing students to be successful in all aspects of their lives is an important goal, as I want them to experience many positive opportunities in their future.
What are we doing in class?
I ask that students discuss the texts they are reading with family, so be sure to engage your child in a conversation about what they are reading and writing! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
You will find homework updated weekly on the Homework page which you can access via the Newark Middle School's webpage by clicking on the Homework tab. Homework is due upon arrival in class on the date due.
You may access the noted websites just by clicking on the listed site.
All of my students will have a login and password, if they do not already have one, to improve upon their English Language Arts skills by completing IXL skills. Each student will be expected to spend time every week working on this site. Skills will be taught prior to practice and teacher support will be available for stronger comprehension and growth. Thank you for your support at home!
Students will have a login and password to improve upon their English Language Arts skills when they visit this site. I encourage students with internet access to utilize this site outside of the classroom. All students should complete one reading passage each week. Thank you for your support!
2017 - 2018 School start date: Tuesday, September 4th.
I look forward to working with all of my students soon!
