How can you cover a LOT of critical content in a LITTLE amount of time? This ELA Daily Review is a unique way to get your students warmed up and helps incorporate the 7th-8th Grade Language Standards, Grammar, Vocabulary Practice, and Reading Comprehension skills.
Each month contains 4-5 weeks of ELA bell work, which will have a theme around the season, national holidays, or events associated with that particular month. The morning work is focused on ELA 7th-8th Grade Common Core Standards. Each day has a thematic structure to cover language standards as well as enhance vocabulary and comprehension skills.
This bundle includes ELA Daily Review for the months of August - June. Each month includes 4-5 weeks of morning work.
Each week follows a predictable and engaging structure:
Meaningful Monday: Monday is focused on making meaning. Tasks will focus on synonyms, antonyms, vocabulary words, context clues, and making meaning in a short amount of text. Some tasks may require students to make meaning in the text (inference, message, adages, proverbs, etc.) or build vocabulary skills.
Text Structure Tuesday: Tuesdays will have a paragraph that requires students to identify the text structure, signal words, main idea, author's perspective, or vocabulary, or any other question types related to the Craft and Structure standards.
Wordy Wednesday: Wednesday is all about working with words. Tasks include working with shades of meaning, homophones, spelling, prefixes, suffixes, roots, and other word skills.
Throwback Thursday:Thursday is all about grammar usage and conventions.
Figurative Friday: Figurative Friday tasks include working with various types of figurative language including similes, metaphors, idioms, poems, alliteration, structures of poems and more!
GOOGLE FORMS: All months have been updated to include self-grading Google Forms.
You asked, I answered. This resource is a result of multiple requests from 7th-8th grade teachers that have been using the 7th-8th Grade ELA Daily Review. These teachers wanted a way to assess the skills practiced throughout the week.
These weekly assessments are a companion for the 7th-8th Grade ELA Daily Review. The daily review is available in an ELA bundle. Click the link below to view the bundle.
The ELA daily review covers critical language, grammar, and comprehension skills over the year. The suggested way to use this resource is by reviewing the skills throughout the week with the morning work, and then giving the assessment on Friday for a weekly quiz grade.
Not only will this hold your students accountable, but this also serves as a gauge for students' learning. Plus, it's a consistent weekly quiz grade with a streamlined answer key to be easy on your teacher eyes!
