The Hall Way...
Phish Phriends - exploring how to implement an aquaponics system in our schools that allow us to grow our own vegetables.
Greenhouse Gang - exploring hanging wall gardens in our school to produce our own vegetables
The classes just wrote a detailed paragraph about whether they think the ancient ruler Hammurabi's laws were just or not. They acquired evidence from documents in something called a Mini-DBQ. This has also led to discussions on modern day laws and consequences and forming opinions about them.
Also, the students are writing down facts about countries in the news (Iran, Australia), and this has led to interesting conversations as well. The students ask wonderful questions as a result and are more aware of the world outside of them too.
Next up: Egypt!
Second 6th grade fundraiser for Timber Lee Field Trip in the Spring
The students received information packets on Friday for the Nature's Vision fundraiser. The money raised from selling any items will go to offset the cost of the Timber Lee trip this spring.
The fundraiser will be from Jan. 17-31. Feel free to contact the teachers if you have any questions.
In the block literacy classes, students practiced parts of poetry by playing a game that included clues or hints to the different aspects of poetry. The students then entered their answers into a Google Form. Groups of students were racing against each other. Fun and learning was had by all! We will be finishing up Collection 3 shortly. We will be taking the Collection 3 assessment and will begin our writing assessment.
In the single literacy classes, students have begun exploring space and the ocean through various texts. We will be analyzing one of Kennedy's famous speeches.
8th Grade Science Fair Information!
8th grade students are in the beginning stages of preparing for the Warhawk Energy Fair schedule for February 13th. Students will choose an energy topic, research it, design an experiment around it, and present their information and findings to their class, other students, and teachers. Please check in with your student regularly on their progress by asking about their topic, what materials they need, their plans for an experiment, what their tri-fold layout looks like, and by practicing their final presentation with you. Students have been given a detailed calendar and guided packet to support them throughout the project. Thank for your support from home.

Rescue Readers Reading Program
Helping Paws Woodstock, IL Animal Shelter has launched Rescue Readers Reading Program that lets kids age 6 and up become a hero as they read to shy dogs and cats to make them more comfortable around humans. The activity has a dual benefit: It increases the animal’s chances for adoption while improving the participant’s reading skills. All Rescue Readers must attend a training session with their parent or guardian. A parent or guardian also must be present as the child reads to the animals.
