End-of-the-Year Reminder

It is hard to believe that we are in the fourth marking period! The students are starting to look forward to summer vacation, but they have to remember that their effort in class needs to continue!

As discussed with the students, they are unable to make corrections during the fourth marking period. We are trying to prepare them for the 7th grade expectations they will face next year. Please have a conversation at home about how important it is to put in their very best effort. If they do that, they will succeed!

The Lightning Thief

We are continuing to read about Percy Jackson's adventures while on his quest. The students are REALLY enjoying this book. It has been so much fun watching them learn about Greek mythology through a character's experiences. In class, they are just finishing up writing an analytical essay in which they determine a theme and key elements that are present in the myth of "Prometheus".

Social Studies

In Class Research-

As you know from previous newsletters, the students are working on two different projects. In class, the students have been researching a god, goddesses or mythological figure from the past to help them better understand allusions that occur in Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief. So far, they have created a physical poster to answer simple questions they were given about their figure.

This week, the students will start doing more intense research. Once they have found enough information, they will begin creating their multimedia glogs on Glogster.

Library Mod-

With the summer Olympic games quickly approaching, the students are learning more about them through research. Mrs. Fiedler is working with the students as they research Olympic figures, games and other topics. This research is being done through online resources and will result in the students creating a PowerPoint presentation that will be presented to the class. Ask them about what they've learned!
