The week of October 8th - 12th

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  All of my 6th and 7th grade students have grammar homework this week.  My 7th grade students also have vocabulary/spelling homework.  My 6th grade classes have a grammar quiz this Friday; 6th graders can study their Q1 grammar homework in preparation for this quiz.

My 6th grade classes continue their Seedfolks/Community unit this week.  6th graders get their Seedfolks book this Tuesday.  6th graders also work on their Community Paragraph assignments this week; that paragraph is due October 16th.  My 7th grade classes start their WWII unit this week.  7th graders read poems about WWII this week, and check out their WWII novels this Thursday.

Congratulations to the students who made the Knowledge Bowl team.  Our first Knowledge Bowl practice is this Friday from 8:40-9:20 in Room 213.  And please check out our classroom Facebook page; I will be posting pictures of 7th grade research presentations.  Have a great week everyone!
