Mrs. Jennifer McCarthy
Welcome to 8th grade ELAR, Team 81. My name is Jennifer McCarthy. I have taught for nine years, but this is my seventh year here at Piner Middle School. I am excited for a new year and new activities in class. Each week we will focus on an important part of language arts that students will need to learn to succeed later in life. The focus of this class is to teach students how to write multiple styles of essays with correct grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling, as well as the important parts of reading and comprehension. We will have lots of fun creating new graphic organizers, using creative topic selectors, and finding interesting ways to take notes to remember the content we are responsible for.
Feel free to browse my site. I will include dates on the calendar for different assignments and will attach some information in the files to the left. If you have agreed to the "Google Classroom" school e-mail/website we will also be using that to get assignments and review things for class. If you need more information or clarification for an assignment or due date, please contact me via e-mail or call the school. I will answer any questions as soon as possible.
