I worked with Ms. Frederick's 6th graders on a fiction genre activity. The students learned about the elements of fiction genres, saw examples of sub-genres and completed a card activity to identify the genre. I was happy to learn every table chose the correct answers!
My 8th grade class worked with the "Johnson team", Ms. Tammy Johnson and Ms. Mindi Johnson, to continue working on their "All About Me" poster activity. They are practicing their use of writing mechanics by telling a short story about their lives, creating illustrations about their favorite movie and drawing cartoons about themselves. They continue tomorrow to write a story about a hero in their lives. It's exciting to read about their lives to get to know more about them as individuals.
Ms. Fairbanks is working with the 6th grade in the computer lab on nutrition. The students learn to identify healthy food, then find a healthy recipe they like.
