We kicked off the month of August in Mrs. Miller's class with a lot of activities that helped students get to know each other, Mrs. Miller, and the classroom expectations. It wasn't long before we jumped into a rigorous routine and began our first project. First we talked about overcoming obstacles in life. We also discussed life lessons and how they are learned. Finally, we talked briefly about types of poetry. Students then took all of this information and put together poetry projects consisting of four poems each, based on life lessons. The result was astounding. It was amazing to read the deep thoughts of Will Rogers' 7th grade students. It was clear that, though young, these students have a great deal of original thought and life experience that can enrich the learning environment. I, personally, look forward to seeing what they continue to come up with this year!

Mrs. Miller's students were very happy  and Mrs. Miller was very surprised when she was awarded teacher of the month for November. It was a real honor! Then, while the month was short due to the coming break we had a great time in the classroom. We continued reading our novel, worked hard on Greek and Latin as well as Grammar, and even wrote persuasive essays on whom our protagonist should marry. It was fun to see relationships develop after students had already chosen their team (i.e. team John, team William, or team Nat). Finally, we enjoyed our final days before Christmas break by celebrating with all things Grinch related. Students worked in teams to conquer an escapee room, they went "Christmas shopping", and we watched thee movie on non-test days. Then, in what seemed like an instant all of the students were whisked away to their break, and to all I say, Merry Christmas!

November was a truly challenging moth as students learned about the RACE method response. R is for restate the question. A is for Answer the question. C is for cite evidence for your answer. E is for explain how your evidence supports your answer. Students struggled at first to use this method, but after practicing they began understanding how to use the method successfully. Students also practiced using Google classroom in new ways that will be more effective and efficient in the classroom for future projects. It was truly a month of growth!

In October we began reading The Witch of blackbird Pond, a novel that got us in the mood for fall, and stretched our understanding of vocabulary. This novel is about a 16 year old young woman who is experiencing a lot of change in her life; the loss of her grandfather, moving to a new country, and others having very different expectations for her. We discussed as a class how we relate to how she must have felt. It was a great time of getting to know each other better!

The Keychains should be in no later than Wednesday next week.  It's my fault that they have taken so long to come in.  Let me explain:    Normally when businesses work with a vendor, a Purchase Order is issued and the Vendor delivers the items with the knowledge that the invoice will be paid. In this situation, I was working with a small business owner who works out of her home.  I never thought about the fact that she would require the money first so that she could order the keychains.  It was something I had assumed. Unfortunately when dealing with school districts, sometimes it takes a while to pay the vendors, and this is what happened.   What I know:  The keychains have been ordered, and are being shipped today. We are just waiting for delivery.  Please know that I'm so very sorry for this misunderstanding.
