In Language Arts there will be endless opportunities to expand your knowledge and skills in reading and writing during Quarter 3! We continue to use the WICOR method during class: we Write, we Inquire, we Collaborate, we Organize ourselves and our materials and we Read- every day. Here you will find YOUR VOICE!!! You will be asked during Quarter 3 to begin providing an optimistic closure to each day. In the optimistic closure you must target your learning and think about what you are "taking away". Use the WICOR acronym to help guide you.
