This week we worked on our mini unit for the events that led to the Revolutionary War. The students were quizzed on the New England States. Monday and Tuesday we will have our Southern States quiz. Next week Louisiana territory, Jefferson Era and Lewis and Clark.
Welcome to the Genesis Team! It's been so great getting to know our new students so far! Students have been sharing their reading habits and interests with me in reading class, and they also toured the Springman LRTC to orient themselves to our resources and book selection. In writing class, students participated in an activity using Play Doh to do a hands-on comparison between being a sculptor and a writer. They will be using the writing process (pre-writing, drafting, revising, editing, publishing) to write a narrative poem about themselves next week, and they will be using the writing process throughout the school year as they write in a variety of genres and formats. I am looking forward to supporting students' growth as readers and writers this year!!
