Happy Fall from Miss Kollen!
How Did a Month Go By Already?!
Happy Autumn Families!
Here in LA and Social Studies, the kids are getting acclimated to being leaders at Visitation and are working to setting good examples for all the younger students.
Updates from the Classroom
Language Arts Update
In 7/8, we have been digging deep into Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery". It's worth spending so much time on, as we are discussing setting, mood, conflict, and theme. Soon, we will transition into another equally rich short story.
Next week both classes will start their classroom novels!
Social Studies Update
The 5/6 students are currently reading about Hunter-Gathers and how humans migrated to different areas of the world! We had fun talking about why humans did not migrate to Antartica!
They will take this test three times throughout the year, and it is a fun (I promise) way to see how your students are growing and achieving this year!
