Welcome to Mrs. Cruce's classroom ELA page!

Tutorial Times:  Mondays-Fridays 7:30am, Wednesdays 3:40pm until 4:30pm, and other afternoons on request.
We are currently working on grammar and understanding informational texts.
What are informational text structures? How do we recognize and identify the different types? How do we apply that understanding and analyze the information across various texts?
For grammar, we are reviewing skills taught earlier. We will be testing over these skills weekly, so be sure you know them well.
