Where has the month gone? It seems like the school year has been flying by. It's not just me though that feels like that -the students have been saying that too. It's amazing how fast time goes sometimes.
The 5th/6th graders are getting done with their Europe project. They have been working hard to get everythign done for this project, and I think that they have learned a lot along the way. Next Tuesday is our potluck. The potluck is a great time for the students to show off what they have done and to try different foods from other countries. It will be interesting to see what everyone brings in to eat.
We are geting close to finishing the books that we are reading. The kids are antsy about starting the next books, but we are not there quite yet. i think another 2 or 3 weeks, and we'll be done.
In English, we have been working on compound and complex sentences. I am trying to help everyone learn how to punctuate them correctly since many people write them incorrectly. I am also trying to get them to do this outside of just English class.
On Monday, we saw our first snow of the year. All of the students were very excited to see the short lived snowstorm. i am not sure if I am ready for snow though.
The past two months we have been doing one perspective and two perspective drawing. It has been a great learning experience, and the students have all done a great job with their drawings. I hope that you have gotten to see what they have drawn.
Next week is Thanksgiving and then we are going to start the Christmas program. Busy time of the year coming up. Midquarter is the Monday after Thanksgiving!!
