6th Grade Update by: Nava K.
Last week in LA, we made a jeopardy game as a review of all the grammar that we did this year. So this week, we played it. We played the game and finished it after 2 days. The game was our review. Friday was our “test” and next year we’ll see if we need to redo any lessons.
One Final Blog Post and Update From The 2017-18 7th Grade
By: Courtney C.
This week in language arts we finished our book, Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry, by Mildred D. Taylor. Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry is a book based in Mississippi and it is about a black family that faces racism and hard times. If you want to know what happens in the book, go read it! After we finished, we had a discussion about the various themes and symbols in the book. We were just assigned to work on a three-paragraph essay. We get to choose a topic out of the three we were given.
As the school year comes to an end, Mrs. T and a couple of other teachers have been packing to move their classrooms to the upstairs or downstairs. Next week will be a fun filled last week of school! I hope you enjoyed reading these blog posts and updates. See you next year!
Speak and Speeches by: Jack H.
This week in 8th grade Language Arts with Mrs. Teitelbaum, we continued to read our books for the class, with the boys reading the book The Accident by Todd Strasser and the girls reading Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. The boys will be finishing the book by tomorrow (Friday) and having their final discussions then, and the girls will finish their book by Monday with their final discussions being sometime next week.
We’ve also been working on our graduation and memorial speeches that we will read during our graduation ceremony. Each student wrote about a topic that connects to their time here at the MJGDS elementary and middle school, and each student also wrote a memorial for one or many of the people who have sadly passed away during our time here.
