Mrs. Munger's LA Class
Here's what's going on!
8th graders are reading All of the Above, and have met 4 characters already: Sharice, Rhondell, Mr. Collins, and James Harris lll. These students and teacher have a goal to create something big! Ask your 8th grader just what that big thing is!
7th graders began reading the Hunger Games and participated in their own class reaping. Now, we obviously aren't really sending them to the Hunger Games, BUT, we did a simulation to see if the odds were in their favor. Students did math calculations to decide whether "the odds be ever in their favor" and we had some interesting results! Ask your 7th grader their feelings about the "reaping" and the first 3 chapters of the Hunger Games!
It's been a fun start to our novels, and all students are doing great on their independent reading during class.
Homework: Please be asking your student if they have homework on Tuesday and Thursday nights. We are doing much of our grammar instruction "flipped" which means that students take notes at home, or do a brief assignment to show their understanding at home. It is something that they are responsible for, and have time to do during NE time as well as some alloted (7th grade vocabulary word) time during language arts.
