We have had two terrific field trips and now it's on to conferences. Feel free to prepare questions ahead of time as we are trying to see as many parents/ guardians as possible and our time is limited.
Both 6th and 7th grades are coming to the end of our first unit. Students will be taking a post assessment next week to determine what they have learned from our focused study of characters and theme. This is not an assessment that students can 'study' for. Anyone who has had strong agency and paid attention during class will do well. Retakes are available to anyone who stays after school with me for a reteaching work session-more on this after the assessment.
6th Grade: Our next Unit of Study is: Social Issues Book Clubs All students must have a realistic fiction book by next Friday, November 3. Students will be grouped by their book choice. I have many choices in my library and I will be taking both classes to the HKMS library as well.
7th Grade: Our next Unit of Study is: Analyzing Texts Across Genres This is an exciting unit where students will be analyzing author's purpose, theme, and author's craft across genres as diverse as nonfiction-informational to poetry. Students need to continue to have an independent book at all times in class.
