Highlights from around school:
Here is a picture from Mrs. Walchesky’s class Halloween activities. Here, students were racing to fill their pumpkins. They had to spin a paper clip and see what number their clip landed on, count out that many candy corn and fill their pumpkins as quickly as possible. Once the game was over, they worked on connecting the dots to build a skeleton.
Mrs. Singletary’s class built pumpkin catapults and worked on problem solving and teamwork!
This week Mrs. Alexander’s 8th grade Honors class met up with their buddy classroom for the first time. 8th graders helped Mrs. Perry’s 4th grade students come up with introductions and topic sentences for their essays.
In Mrs. Binnar’s class this week we became authors. We created our own books about pumpkins using the information we learned in our weekly book study. We practice writing proper sentences. We also created a table of contents for our books.
This week 6th grade began studying the short story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”! We are reading the story in three different parts and then we will read the play afterward. Then, we will compare and contrast the two versions of the story.
In 7th grade, we began our “spooky story” unit. This unit has each student reading a Goosebumps book and then using their story as a model to write their own story. So far the students have been enjoying their book and looking forward to beginning to write their own next week!
This week in Mrs. Perry’s 4th grade class we worked super hard on building literary essays and creating a thesis with evidence and details. We also have been killing it on 2 and 3 digit multiplication! Our small groups have been working great and I am so excited to see all of the progress we have made. My picture for the week was watching Mr. Kabel do handstands with my girls.
Fifth grade has also spent the week researching all about Bearded Dragons in anticipation of the newest member of Voyager, Pancakes!
