Here we are at the end of the first trimester and report cards will be going home very soon. All students are now very familiar with class routines and procedures and the pace has been stepped up a bit. Always remember to let me know if your child is talking about stress or struggling, we can work together to work out the issues.
Seventh grade students are immersed in their "Companion Book" projects, a series of literary essays that capture the essence of a favorite book. We are continuing to explore connections of characters, settings, and themes across fiction genres.
Sixth grade students have just begun the "Literary Essay" unit and are learning the structure and components of a quality essay. We are reading many wonderful short stories to motivate the writing process.
Happy Holidays and may your vacation time be filled with family and laughter!
