Holocaust Novels

We just finished reading The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and Number the Stars. Students are creating projects to demonstrate their understanding of various aspects of the novels. Students made newspapers, scrapbooks, book covers, and trunks. 

Sorting Prompts

7th graders sorted writing prompts this morning. We determined if the prompt was having us write an expository piece, a narrative, or an argumentative piece. 

Novel projects

To wrap up our literature circle novels, 6th graders are completing projects to demonstrate their knowledge of characters, plot, and events from their novel. Students are making board games, collages, diaries, comic books, artwork, and more! Look for your child’s final product on Fresh Grade on Friday! 

Lit Circles

6th graders are working in literature circle groups right now. Each group is reading a different novel. Each night, each student is responsible for a job. Students then share their job with the group the next day. Students either visualize, report (summarize), create discussion questions, look for exceptional language the author has used, or make connections to the text. We are having great discussions about the text!
