We are deep into the third week of school, and it is hard to believe! Everyone is adjusting to waking up early, and getting into a routine again.
9th graders completed several short stories and are now moving on to a novel. We will begin reading and discussing "Freak the Mighty." I have several activities planned with this novel, and we will continue to introduce and utilize thinking maps. Students are continuing to learn new vocabulary, literary terms, and grammar.
10th graders will also leave behind the short story unit to begin "Lord of the Flies." I have already put students into "Tribes" and they have had their first challenge...Who will survive??? Fun! We will continue to do more group work with this novel, and enjoy the amazing literature of William Golding!
Creative Writing has been busy creating character collages...I have had an amazing time, personally! Now we will take what we have made visually and put it into words! We are bringing human beings to life. How exciting!
So many wonderful things going on everyday, and I know I am leaving lots of the learning out. Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns! You are always welcome to visit our classroom!
