Another excellent blog

Our students seem excited about our upcoming project. They are doing a research project that goes along with the novel we have been reading, Danger in the Desert by T.S. Fields.  Each student is either working solo or with a partner to complete a one page research paper and a project before December 14th. We spent the day Friday in the library doing reserach. We will be going to the library again on Monday to complete this. They may research in the encyclopedia or on the Internet.

They chose between ten different topics for their project and paper. These topics are; Author Terrie Fields (T.S.), Illustrator W. Porter, deserts of North America, animals of the desert, plants of the desert, types of cacti, survival skills, desert weather/climate, Phoenix, or Arizona.

We will be having an opportunity for parents and friends to view the completed projects on Thursday, December 20th. Visitors may come during their students Language Arts class time to view their students project as well as the projects of other 6th grade students. We look forward to seeing you there.

October! October means many things to different people. It can be scary, frightening, cool, warm, breezy, exciting, thrilling, etc. There are many adjectives that can be used to describe October.

In Language Arts we have just completed a unit on adjectives and will be finishing viewing a United Streaming video with Professor Syntax and his side- kick Nemesis. Hopefully, we will find out who took the missing Book of Modifiers while we learn about adverbs.

There will be a quiz on adjectives and adverbs on Friday.

We will also be continuing to work on writing and perfecting our DGPs.

See ya in class during this chilling thrilling month!!
