SPEAK Transition Class Enjoy a Day at the Rodeo!
Mrs. Greene and Mrs. Harris's SPEAK transition class attended the Humble Rodeo's 2019 Special Kids Day! The students engaged in seeing different Rodeo animals as well as petting. There was lots of fun to be had with eating donuts, visiting with friends and former teachers, listening to music, and face painting!
Ms. Witherspoon's Amazing Classroom!
I am pleased to inform everyone about the great things that have been taking place in D112 here at WLMS this semester. We are currently reading the award-winning, Oprah Book Club novel, "Night" by Elie Wiesel. We have been in the midst of intense preparation for our novel study for this term, which began with a virtual tour to the Anne Frank Memorial Museum and the completion of a Hyperdoc that included other literary works about the Holocaust as well as victims and survivors, vocabulary study, and the author research in the form of Cornell notes leading up to the "Fakebook" of Elie Wiesel.
It is amazing to observe the students as they explore and learn in the form of self-discovery the different types of things I have prepared for them. Our students are really taking off like rocking ships in this class, and I can't wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for us!
We have an exciting week planned for all students and staff Monday, 2/11 - Friday, 2/15!
Challenge your child(ren) to complete all tasks and extend acts of kindness beyond this week! In addition to these Kindness Challenge tasks, each student will have lessons during Advisory that focus on "Groups, Cliques and Friendships". Stay tuned for photos of our special arrival messages for all students on Friday, 2/15, as they arrive to school!
Humble ISD will offer the Pre-ACT to interested 8th, 9th, and 10th grade students on Saturday, April 13, 2019. Students may select either Kingwood High School or Summer Creek High School as a test site.
As the PSAT does for the SAT, the Pre-ACT simulates the ACT testing experience within a shorter period of time on all four ACT test subjects - English, Math, Reading, and Science. It will help students to identify their academic strengths and areas for improvement. The Pre-ACT also contains an interest inventory that provides students with a personalized view of interests with college and career alignment.
Students will register and pay ($20) for exam online - Registration Link . Registration opens on February 1, 2019.
Although we'd want to encourage students to take the Pre-ACT without accommodations, accommodations will be provided by request and will be limited to only extended time and frequent breaks. The exam will last approximately 2.5 hours - all students will be dismissed at the same time and may expect to leave by 11:30 a.m.
