- No school for students, 2/12/16
- No school, Presidents Day, 2/15/16
We have begun exploring the vast history and cultural achievements of the ancient Chinese civilization. Students worked in groups to create an A,B,C Chinese Dynasty book. They were challenged to think outside the box with an atypical a,b,c formula. Ask your child about this project.
Students are experiencing more use of technology across the team through the use of www.newsela.com and Google Classroom, you should expect to see them using the computer more often if the work is not completed at school. This is an excellent opportunity for them to prepare for 8th grade BYOD as well as open up another world of resources to enhance their learning.
I have already created 2 Newsela articles to read and take a quiz to assess their comprehension along with 2 new Google Classroom assignments. Both activities are connected to our current topic of ancient China.
We will be studying ancient India starting mid-February.
Students will be assigned a large poetry project which consist of three parts, recitation, research, and writing at least ten poems. Due dates differ per part, however, students will have a month to work on this assignment. Some class time will be given but parts will need to be done at home. Ask your students where they are in the project.
Please continue to check my website, http://penngrow1.pbworks.com/w/page/84092506/FrontPage. This is a great resource for when students are absent or are missing assignments.
The rest of the month will be spent about the Circulatory and Respiratory System. Both these systems are fun and exciting to learn about, but they can be challenging to understand. So, it is extremely important to stay caught up on all material and assignments!!
