Ms. Bartholomew

Updated March 21, 2016 (except 6th grade HW) Welcome to Ms. Bartholomew's English website. I will use this website to let you know what units we are working on in class, as well as general course information. Feel free to contact me with questions or comments at Elizabeth.Bartholomew@mpls.k12.mn.us or by calling Anthony at 612-668-3240.

6th Grade Course Information: Sixth Grade will focus on building a strong middle school community and developing the habits and skills of a successful student. We will read poems, short stories and novels which deal with community and getting along with others. (Click on the underlined phrase for more information about 6th grade including handouts and homework.) NOTE: WE ARE ASKING SIXTH GRADE STUDENTS TO HAVE A THREE RING BINDER AND A PACKAGE OF LOOSE-LEAF PAPER (REINFORCED HOLES IS BEST). THIS INFORMATION WAS NOT INCLUDED IN THE BACK-TO-SCHOOL PACKET.

7th Grade Course Information: Seventh Grade will focus on creative writing in a variety of styles, vocabulary and playing with words. We will read several novels and explore the themes of truth and self-identity. (Click on the underlined phrase for more information about 7th grade including handouts, flash cards and homework.) 

 Be watching for Scholastic Flyers early in September!

 Order cool books!!

 Last book order of the year is here!

If you didn't get the book you ordered, I have a "no name" one, so see me! 

Scholastic Book Clubs will be at Anthony again this year!

This is a chance for your family to order fun and affordable books!

Scholastic has been around for years and has a variety of books for all ages and interests. Many of you remember the flyers from elementary school.

 

Check out Raina Telgemeier's new book Ghosts! She is a fan favorite and this one promises to be every bit as good as Drama, Sisters, and Smile.

Also, Rick Riordan has TWO new series going. Magnus Chase is about Annabeth's cousin and his connections with Norse mythology- Thor, Loki and Valhalla. A new Magnus Chase book comes out in early October. The other is Trials of Apollo- Zeus punishes Apollo by sending him to earth as a mortal. He needs help from Percy Jackson and the demigods of Camp Half-Blood. A second book in that series comes out in May!

 

There are several ways to order:

  • Look for flyers to come home periodically. These will be handed out by your child’s English teacher. Just fill out the form and send a check payable to Scholastic Book Clubs back to English class. 
  • Order online. You can set up an account through Scholastic at the following website:scholastic.com/readingclub. The first time you order, enter the code MKHXV. The books will be delivered with our regular shipment and handed out in English class.
  • Anthony will earn bonus points with each order, either using the flyer or online, which we will use for books for classrooms and the library.

 

When you register online, it will have my name, since I am the coordinator for Anthony. If you have any questions, you can email me at Elizabeth.Bartholomew@mpls.k12.mn.us
