With the end of the year right around the corner, things are really busy in the middle school. We have things to do before we can rest and relax!
The sixth grade students have finished reading the novel Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. They enjoyed brainstorming with their group for ideas to pack into their survival kit, and came up with some things I wouldn't have thought of. I have picked out 20 words from the vocabulary list we studied to be on the final test, and students have used Pear Deck's Flashcard Factory to create flashcards which we imported into Quizlet. Some of the illustrations were pretty good! The final test for Hatchet will be Monday, May 8. It will consist of a vocabulary test and an open book comprehension/essay test. Next week students will be setting goals and taking spring MAP tests. The last day to take an AR test is Monday, May 20.
The seventh grade students have taken the Diocesan technology test. Like the sixth grade, seventh grade students will now be creating MAP goals and taking the spring MAP tests. We love to see their progress over the year. Students will then finish the Google Slides project, creating a "choose your own" adventure story. I have heard some of their settings and plot lines, so they should be pretty entertaining!
The eighth grade Spanish students took a test yesterday on Unit 3, Lesson 2. They have begun their very LAST unit for the year, in which they will be reviewing colors and learning articles of clothing. They will also be learning more about the verb TENER, (to have), which is used a lot in Spanish. Students will take their last test of the year on Monday, May 13.
Thank you for your support and help at home this year. This has been an amazing year, and I have truly enjoyed my homeroom class. Have a great summer!
