Mrs. Julianne Tripple's Classroom News

10/10/2014 | Sci-fi, vocab and grammar!
This week in reading we are discussing what themes and motifs we have found in Fahrenheit 451. The students are creating popplets using the Popplet app to demonstrate the development and analysis of both theme and motif. The students are also taking their first Wordly Wise quiz on Friday.
In writing, the students are continuing to write their sci-fi stories according to Asimov's criteria. Both peer and self edits are helping the revising and editing process of this assignment.  What's going on with grammar? We are currently learning about participles and gerunds! Ask your child about the Tripple Grammar Slammer each writing class. Your child is sure to impress you with what he or she is doing class.
