October 12-16


What’s happening this week:

We will begin an ecosystem book. Your child will be given an ecosystem to research. Work will be done on the book during class time. Some research will be here at school, but a lot of it will have to be done at home. They will also be given a rubric of how it will be scored and specific guidelines of how it should look.

During this time, we will not have a reading story since we will be using various reading skills to complete the book. Your child will be given the book Sleepy Hollow Sleepover.   They will read this over a two -week period, and the students will create a book report at the end of this time. They will be given specific directions for the book report.

Spanish Class Update 9/18/15

que pasa

Hola!  Spanish classes have been going very well!

Elementary students have an update on AscendSMS following our Friday Spanish classes each week.  Please see your daily notification email for details of what we do each week in class.

Middle School students have all been working on verbs, at various levels.  Each class (5-8) will have a quiz on Monday, September 28:

  • 5th Grade:  Subject Pronouns
  • 6th Grade:  Subject Pronouns and the irregular verb “ser”
  • 7th Grade:  Present tense conjugations of regular -er/-ir verbs
  • 8th Grade:  Conjugating Irregular Verbs (ir, dar, estar, ser, tener)

We also have a 5 word vocabulary quiz each Wednesday.

Any middle school student who would like any extra help or tutoring should see Mrs. McCormick during recess.

Also, if you are looking for a recap lesson to re-explain something we learned in class, you might look at the following website:  It has many videos on various topics of grammar and vocabulary.
