                                                              Great job on the play! I will continue to grade over the break to be sure our grades are up to date for the report card. Enjoy the break! Remember the science fair and midterms when we return.

Please note: 8thgraders should be studying for approximately one hour or more per night. Please refer to the homework schedule. IXL is a useful tool to support classroom lessons. Google Classroom is utilized for history as well as spelling and reading.

I have started a page that will assist me in engaging the children in rigorous and relevant lessons. I purchase the escape rooms which require higher-order thinking than note-taking as well as similar lessons from Teachers Pay Teachers. These lessons are created by both practicing teachers as well as teachers with degrees in curriculum who for a multitude of reasons no longer work inside the classroom. It is a wonderful means to share best practices and to bring diverse learning modalities to the classroom for my students. Thank you for your support. Martha-Spain-28909?utm_campaign=ClassFund%20Page

Students have selected a Native American tribe to research.  The tri-fold poster is due on Monday, October 16, 2017. Students will present their findings. Packets were given today with information regarding the project complete with graphic organizers and checklists to ensure success. I am looking forward to the findings of their research and the completed projects.
