Good bye to 2016...
Reminder: Please remember to not allow your kids to bring glass beverage containers to school. We do not have carpet in our classrooms. Therefore nothing bounces. We had a huge mess of smashed glass and liquid this week. Plastic, rubber coated or metal containers only.

We have a busy schedule this week with chorus and band. We are playing math games today. The kids are enjoying the competition and are even enjoying the challenging level of math questions! It seems like no matter what, if you turn it into a game, they love it! Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah. See you next year!

In ELA this week, we will be continuing to work on our This I Believe personal narratives. We will be working on incorporating sensory details and dialogue during their revisions. Students have a 2nd draft due on Thursday this week, and they will receive feedback when they get back from break.

The students have completed their geography unit. This unit focused on standard G7.1-understands how to use a variety of geographic tools and standard RH6-8.7- can integrate visual information (e.g., in charts, graphs, photographs, videos, or maps) with other information in print and digital texts. After the winter break, we will begin a unit on Africa. Wishing you all happy holidays, safe travels, and the best in 2017!

In engineering, students will shape their air dragsters using power tools in the woodshop. After their designs are completed, they will run time trials to test and redesign their work. Students will paint their dragsters and end the project with a race competition.
