About Melinda Butler
Mrs. Melinda Butler
7th Grade ELA, Room 312
Welcome to another exciting year!!!!
My name is Melinda Butler and I am very excited to be your child’s Language Arts teacher this year at Pleasant Hill Middle School. I have 13 years of experience in the Lexington One School system. While raising my two daughters, I taught and tutored middle school Language Arts in the private school setting.
I graduated from Winthrop University with an undergraduate degree in Special Education Learning Disabilities. I then obtained a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. I am certified in middle level ELA, and I have completed my certification for working with gifted and talented children.
I am an avid reader and writer. Reading and writing are not only skills needed to function in today’s society; they are also outlets for creativity and self discovery. I also enjoy cooking, swimming, hiking, kayaking, and many other creative and active endeavors.
This will be an exciting year in English Language Arts. Your child will be exploring many different genres while they improve their reading and writing ability. Students will expand their vocabulary as we explore new words and continue with the study of stems. Students will participate in reading and writing workshops. Students will also be creating an interactive notebook in language arts this year. The addition of i-pads will also offer unique learning opportunities.
Once you get your student and parent codes please check Edmodo daily for lesson plans, student resources, and due dates. You will also find more information about my ELA class, the pacing guide we will be following this year, and other helpful links and information.
Needed for ELA
• Notebook (can be spiral or black and white composition) to use in the classroom
• Writing utensils including pens, pencils, and highlighters
• glue stick and sticky notes
Students will have an opportunity to eat a snack at 1:45 in the afternoon. The snack should be healthy, no candy please, and should not take more than five minutes to consume. Pretzels, carrots, granola bars, cheese crackers, and fruit are examples of healthy snacks.
Your child will be participating in many discussions in my language arts class. I expect students to listen to each other respectfully and to respond to each other positively. Students are expected to have all materials needed with them.
