Highlights & Homework for Grade 7 Language & Literature

Thought for the day: “A good exercise for the heart is bending down and helping someone to get up.”

This week students completed reading the short story, ‘How I Taught My Grandmother to Read’ by Sudha  Murthy. They also attempted 2 worksheets based on the story which involved vocabulary and textual questions. Students also enhanced their critical thinking skills by solving reading comprehension passages from readtheory.org in the class. They had their book club session this week where they decided which book they would present first. They also attempted a Formative Assessment of Unit 1.
Home Work:
Describe “A day in the life of a grandparent” using the vocabulary that you have learned in 250-300 words. You can draw or include a picture with your Grandparent. Alternatively, you can also interview a friend’s grandparent and write about a day in their life.
