So much to report on, in so little time! I cannot believe how quickly the year is flying by!
We have started talking to the kids about the business fair, which will be the first fundraiser for our grade 8 trip. I have seen this done at many different schools, and the students truly love it. I cannot wait to see how our students make out! A note will be coming home soon to discuss the plan of attack.
We re finishing up our Maze Runner and Hunger Games comparative essays. I am SO proud of the work that the kids have done throughout the long writing assignment. Essay writing is the only wiring form that will be covered in high school and to prepare the students we will continue to write essays for the rest of the year. The good copies of these are due on FRIDAY!
We are learning about the area of a circle in math. This is a complicated unit with many formulas. Please let me know if you would like any extra work at home for your student.
If at any time you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!
