Howe's Happenings Week 14 2015-2016
German, ELA 9, and Reading Acceleration at LOHS
What did we do last week?
Last week, Reading Acceleration students continued silent reading and evaluating their reading/study habits and concentration. We read, discussed and evaluated an article on the impact of mindfulness on basketball. For the next week or so, we will be working on a section from the Biology textbook on cells and cell structure.
Last week, German 1 began exploring some winter traditions in Germany. Since today is Nikolaustag, students will find a treat waiting for them in class on Monday. We also continued our unit on clothing and shopping. Students got to visit five online stores in Germany and view a print catalog. In class, they placed an order and described problems with the order once they received it. This week, we will continue to learn useful phrases when shopping and how to describe clothing.
I'm looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday night!
If you are unable to attend and would like to set up a different appointment, please don't hesitate to contact me.
German Classes to Build Gingerbread Houses
Below are three of the many houses students created last December. I'm looking forward to seeing this December's masterpieces as well.
