Week of September 26, 2016

Monday: videotape news reports from "All Summer in a Day"
Tuesday: suitcase activity in preparation for Thursday's read. 
Wednesday: background on WWII, Holocaust, refugees.
Thursday: "Suzy and Leah" read aloud.
Friday: internet article on Syrian refugees.

The reading expectation for 7th grade language arts is to finish a book every 3 weeks.  The books are totally student-chosen but must be at an appropriate reading level for that student.  Credit will be given when a book report is turned in or a book chat is done with the teacher.  Book chats are available during RtI every Monday.

SECOND book for Trimester 1 is due:
Wednesday, October 5 (midterm).

    PARENTS:  please encourage your child to "do the math" when they choose an independent reading book.  Total number of pages in the book/number of days to due date = number of pages to read every day. That keeps them accountable AND relieves your stress the night before....

    Scholastic book order forms are made available in my classroom and students may order books in two ways:  
  • bring order form and a check to Scholastic to class
  • go online to: scholastic.com/readingclub  (classroom code is HQ23G)  you may pay by credit card online and books will be shipped to school

We are well into our CAD unit (Computer Aided Drafting). Students have been using a computer to draw with. They are finding that this system is a huge technological advancement. The students are finding that there are patterns to CAD drawings and the use of the pattern help produce drawings rather quickly at the onset of the unit.
