Welcome to Mr. DeCaluwe’s Class!
It’s hard to believe the Second Trimester is almost done!
This year I am teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Reading and 7th and 8th grade Social Studies. The majority of the assignments will be placed on Google Classroom. We will also use other programs to allow parents to see student work throughout the year.
I will work on posting general homework here but the majority will be on Google Classroom.
All Reading Classes will read two independent reading novels by the end of the first trimester and complete the Letter-Essay assignment for each book. For the second trimester, all students need to be reading at least 20 minutes a night in additional to independent reading time.
