Welcome to Language Arts!
All English Language Arts students will be studying ACT/SAT vocabulary words.
The students will then have a review test every 5-6 weeks. To help students study for this test, a quizlet has been set up online. The quizlet is updated with the new words each week. I would encourage the students to start studying this now rather than later. The quizlet allows the students to study from a computer or other electronic device. It’s a good way to study while riding in the car or waiting for someone to get done with basketball!
Hello! My name is Angela Tuma, and I am excited to be teaching Language Arts at Aspen Middle School! I have my undergraduate in Elementary Education with Middle School Language Arts from Minnesota State University, Mankato, and my Masters Degree in Curriculum Instruction with a K-12 Reading license from my Concordia St. Paul. I have previously taught in Lakeville, Chaska, and Burnsville school districts in both elementary and middle school classrooms. I currently live in Prior Lake with my husband (Bob), two girls (Elizabeth, 12; and Lexi, 10), and a cat, Hailey. I love to read, shop at Barnes and Noble and Herberger's, and LOVE University of Kansas basketball! I am excited to get to know all of the students, and begin a wonderful year here at Aspen Middle School!
Vocabulary 4-square is due every Friday. There will also be a vocabulary test every Friday on the words they have been working on all week.
Students should be reading 30 minutes EVERY night. Bookmarks are due the 1st day of every month.
