Ms. Liz Cohen
Happy New Year and welcome to the second semester of the 2018-2019 school year! For the remainder of the year we will be engaged in exciting and rigorous work to improve our study of language arts and reading.
In language arts we will focus on informational text, including research and how to best communicate ideas and instructions to other people. We will also study persuasive text and drama.
In reading we will improve our fluency with daily exercises and will continue to build on our understanding of the English language with word study, story structure and a genre focus.
Reading proficiency is the foundation for all other learning and must be one of the highest priorities for all students. Therefore, we will emphasize comprehension and content literacy throughout the year.
I have high expectations and will do all that I can to help students grow and achieve great success. Assignments for the remainder of this year will be both challenging and rewarding. My focus is students’ learning and preparedness to meet the challenges they will encounter in high school next year.
I am delighted with the academic performance of all my wonderful students and am very proud of them!
