It's hard to believe it's midquarter already. I know that I am not the only one that has a hard time believing how fast these first few weeks have gone. It has been a good and busy time. We are getting into the swing of things and some big projects are around the corner.
The 5th/6th grade will be starting a large project for social studies. We will be planning a trip to Europe.
They also will be working on an autobiography project for English. We will be doing a lot of writing for this.
The 7th/8th graders will also be doing an autobiography project for English.
I am trying to have a lot of writing. The more we write, the better we will become at doing it.
We have also finished the first two books of the year - Bunnicula and The Giver. There have been mixed reviews of these books. Ask your child what they thought of the book that they have read.
I am dividing the 5-8 graders into three groups for the next books. We will be reading Anne of Green Gables, Where the Red Fern Grows, and Charlotte's Web. All three are great books, and I hope the students enjoy them as much as I do.
Tell your child to tell me you have read this blog. You child will get a treat if they do!
