It's hard to believe we're at the 3-week reporting period for the last quarter already... this year is flying by! Here is what's happening in room 101 this week:
6th GOAL: Students are working hard in literature circles. They meet every day to discuss the reading and read again for the next day. All books fall under the theme "Moral Dilemma."
7th GOAL: Students are preparing sets and characters for their animated movies. We start filming next week!
8th GOAL: Students are conducting interviews, researching their topics, and finding pictures for their documentary films. Next week we'll be writing and recording our scripts.
8th Critical Concepts: Students are finishing up their financial literacy unit by talking about job applications and taxes withheld from paychecks. On Friday we'll have a posttest for the whole unit.
