January - February Update

Happy New Year!

Our Athenian Secret unit was a HUGE success. We are moving ahead to a new unit called "Travel the USA." This is also a unit that uses the simulation based learning model. Students will "travel" the USA and visit various historic sites. They will plan their trip carefully accounting for a rental car, food, lodging and entertainment. We will create an

extra credit list that encourages students to complete activities at home. I am very excited about this new unit, and I am sure the students will LOVE it!

We continue to work on math problem solving skills weekly. Also, we are starting Sarah Plain and Tall by Patricia Mac Laughlin. This is a wonderful book that introduces students to prairie life in the early 1900s.

I am looking forward to a terrific 2016!
