Howdy all! I'm Mrs. Calcaneo and will be your Cougar's teacher this year for English I. I'm excited to be here!
We are currently reviewing inference and will move on to reading some short story pieces next week. Upcoming will be a test over short story elements which will also have a short answer question on it. We will review how to answer a short answer question in class so kids are prepared to succeed. The date of the test will be forthcoming as soon as we nail down a date. Harvey kind of put us in a tailspin! Thanks for your patience and let's have a great year!
