Now to catch you up with what's been going on in my classroom....
One really fun activity I did in language arts was comparing genres. In social studies we were studying the middle ages and the black death so we looked at a play and an article. I then drew a venn diagram on the board and talked about how the mood and tone of each piece was different. My students always love acting out plays.
In social studies I offered an extra credit project where students had to build their own kingdom. I was so proud at how elaborate my students got with their castles.
Next week is the last week of teaching before EOG's begin. It's going to be crunch time but I'm excited to see how my students do this year. They have been a great group of kids!
