                                                                Check out IC Facebook for photos. We are submitting our Michigan Hero essays for the contest by Farm Bureau Insurance. Students have finished reading The Monkey's Paw and completing a number of learning standards including comparing and contrasting the written, play, and video versions. The posters to demonstrate comprehension of the story as well as the themes represented are great!. This week we will move on to explore the spirit of change as the United States of America expanded during the 1820-1860s.

                                        Our field trip to the Detroit City Music Hall was most enjoyable. The children behaved superbly!

This week we will die back into Shurley to continue our use of direct and indirect objects and hone our skills at writing compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences.

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.

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.
