Weekly Update 12/2
I hope you all had a nice THANKSGIVING with your families! We have just taken down all of the pumpkins and now have decorated the classroom for the holidays and it is beginning to look more like a winter wonderland!
Academics at a glance this week...
In History, we are continuing with our studies with chapter 20, with the topic of WWI. Homework will be given, as necessary and will be posted on the classroom website.
In English, we are continuing our reading of the novel, "The Great Gatsby." We are completing a wide range of activities to go along with the given reading and will be given quizzes for each chapter that will test basic comprehension.
In Academic Literacy, students are continuing to read the novel, "The Juvie Three". We will be finishing up our studies with this in the next week or so and a test will be given sometime next week. I will provide everyone with a definite date soon! I am hoping to begin reading the novel, "A Christmas Carol" at the start of next week, ( I am hoping they will arrive by mail by Friday!).
