Hit the Ground Running

Hit the ground running indeed! Easing the students (and ourselves for that matter) back into the swing of things was not even an option. Our first week back to school has been full steam ahead to say the least. In reading classes, we have been reading and discussing two different novels simultaneously. We have been learning how to conduct literature circles with Lois Lowry’s Gathering Blue and book clubs with The Hunger Games. The students are making some great connections and seeing many similarities between Kira and Katniss’s two worlds. Next week, we will be working on an art project to depict those similarities. Photos to come. In science this week, the students visited the lab to create 3D models of plant and animal cells. The students brought in various types of candy to use for their cell constructions. Our plan is to continue in our vigorous pursuits to strengthen our minds and expand our knowledge. What wonderful things we are experiencing and learning every day.

  1. I really like book clubs this year. I'm reading Catching Fire, the second book of Hunger Games. I really like the book Catching Fire because it has a lot of action. I like working in my group because they make it fun and interesting.
