The most important lesson in English language is: Every single sentence has a subject and a predicate!
All sentences require a subject and predicate to be a complete sentence. If a sentence is missing a subject or a predicate than it is a fragment sentence! Avoid these like the plague...
A quick review of subjects and predicates: A subject is what or whom the sentence is about. (A simple subject is always a noun.)
A predicate is what or whom the subject is doing. (A simple predicate is always a verb.)
For example: Francisco was sleeping in Ms. Nina's class today.
Identify the subject and predicate of each sentence by underlining the subject and circling the predicate. To do this you will need to copy down each sentence.

Next week are the MAP tests! This year is especially cool because the results will be compared to other Dominican schools for the first time. We'll get to see just how awesome St. Michael's really is! Get some practice with the type of questions you'll see, as well as the new technology, by taking 6 practice questions:
7th graders are creating book trailers for the books they read over the summer!
Project goal: To determine a theme of your book and analyze its development over the course of the text; to also provide an objective summary of the text. (Common Core Standard: ELA 7.2)
