Unit Conversion


No spelling this week due to the modified schedule.


It's not often a teacher can find a class novel that is powerful and engaging that no student has read. Mission accomplished! Students are captivated by the novel Where the Mountain Meets the Moon. We continue our journey with Minli this week as she heads off to find The Old Man of the Moon. For the next several weeks students will read, discuss, and respond to the contents of the novel.

Students will give book talks every 6 school weeks. The below link is a great resource for finding books by genre, age, and reading level. Depending on the genre, a different assignment was issue. Each month students will read a different genre. Our next presentation with project will be due on Wednesday, Nov. 16 (boys) and Thursday, Nov. 17 (girls).

iCivics prepares young Americans to become knowledgeable, engaged 21st century citizens by creating free and innovative educational materials.

In 2009, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor founded iCivics to reverse Americans’ declining civic knowledge and participation. Securing our democracy, she realized, requires teaching the next generation to understand and respect our system of governance.

Every week, students get the opportunity to work on civics related issues in a fun, interactive, creative, and meaningful ways. Students can log on at home, too. I do provide assignments that students complete in class, but feel free to explore the site.
