Where did November go?!

We are moving right along towards winter break! I have the classroom decorated for the holidays and I must say- a little Christmas cheer goes a long way. Each class is on the down hill slope of their respective course and with such joy in classroom, the class seems to be following!

English 11: The class just finished up a large "Facebook Project" Where they made a page based on a character from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. The pictures don't give the creativity justice! This is great article on why teacher SHOULD use social media in the classroom: Huff Post

We are currently moving quickly through our research project! Please see the English 11 page for more information. This will be their largest project this semester and there are many steps to follow! See the calendar if you have any questions.

Mythology: We are watching two movies in class- Hercules and Clash of the Titans please make sure your child has their permission slips turned in!! Upon finishing the movies the students will have compare/contrast project. After all that fun- if we have time we will complete a "Hero" project.

Speech: The students are in the middle of giving their demonstration speeches! I love seeing them really show and tell something. I had one person make salsa, and someone made cookies even a girl who tie-dyed a shirt! So much learning going on! One more chapter and speech before they are finished!
