Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Every year sixth grade students from South Grove go on a wonderful field trip to Victory Field for a fun day of baseball in education! To cover the cost of entry and bussing, students should bring in $10.00. Students may bring this in all at once or little by little! It is getting closer, I cannot wait!

A Claim Worth Arguing!

Students in Mrs. Omeish's Language Arts class have been working hard writing their Argumentative essays. Students had to choose a topic that they were passionate about and convince the reader that his/her view was right with facts! We have discussed how facts are more persuasive than opinions! Each student found at least three credible websites to use as his/her sources. They applied their paraphrasing skills and began building their claim! Just a few of the topics students chose to write about were:

  • Cigarette Smoking Should be Banned
  • Texting and Driving is Dangerous
  • Football is Not Dangerous
  • College Football Players Should Get Paid
  • Cheerleading is a Sport
  • Law Enforcement Cameras are Not an Invasion of Privacy
  • Professional Athletes are OverPaid
  • Cell Phones are Dangerous

Math is Fun!

Fun with Polyhedrons!!! Mrs. Bair's math students have been working on geometry the past couple weeks. Here we are learning about NETS to build and construct geometric solids. Once we have built them, we are then able to determine surface area and volume!

Mystery Hangout!

This was cool! Room 101 participated in South Grove's first ever Google Mystery Hangout! We met live with another classroom and asked yes or no geographical questions to try to figure out where in the United States their class was! They did the same for us!
