Mr. Anderson - Language Arts
Over break, there will be no reading log or lifework of any kind. I will be catching up on some leisure reading and relaxing. I wish all of you a merry holiday. I do not expect anyone to be working on essays over break, and have scheduled ample time when we return to complete the descriptive essay.
-When we return from break, students will continue in their novel reading groups after reviewing some summary notes we took on Tuesday. They will also have time on Wednesday and Friday to work on their essays. Please, ask them about the work they completed in class this week and ask them questions. If they become confused, I have posted the assignment to School Fusion.
Ms. Bosse - Math
Math 6- When we return from break we will spend two days on our Explorer's Ship Project. We will then begin our Problem Solving Unit with Decimals.
Extended Math 6- When we return from break we will spend two days on our Explorer's Ship Project. We will then begin our Integer Operations unit.
Have a safe and happy break! See you in the new year!

Creating Lego movies with an iPad, Lego's and Brictek is not just promoting technology skills; it is the blending of cross curricular objectives while it includes problem-based learning, inquiry/discovery methods, role-play, simulation, and cooperative learning. To many of our ESOL students, speaking English is difficult, but playing with Lego's has its own universal language. Creating animations allows students to convey an idea, concept, or thought in a way that words can't.
