Ms. Venture’s Updates:
Science: With the snow days, there was no science this week.
It’s drama time! For the next two months our classes will be working to bring classical literature to life. This year we have chosen to combine the story of The Prince and the Pauper with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde into a live, 80’s themed musical performance. Final tryouts will take place when we return from our extended snow break!
Computer/Library: Sixth graders spent their computer time investigating a fun science website: www.sciencekids.co.nz I encouraged them to spend more time with the website over the weekend. Seventh graders opted to skip computers this week so they could read Cyrano!
Mr. Vieira’s Updates:
Riggs (Spelling): We are trying out some modifications to our spelling program. Your child will begin to have only 4 spelling words a day. They should still be practicing their new words each night. Students should also practice missed words each night.
History/Geography: Due to several weather disruptions, we will be breezing through our next units. This week 6th grade began studying the Enlightenment. Seventh grade began learning about the 1920s in America.
I have added copies of the slides to the blog here:
