In the Spotlight

In the classroom-6th Grade

Over the past few weeks and months the 6th graders have been working on a variety of activities, projects, lessons, and skills.  One of the more exciting activities we all had the opportunity to take part in was our lung dissection. As you might imagine, this was a big activity with lot of planning and preparation. (A big thanks goes out to our 6th grade Science teacher, Mrs. Wilson, for her hard work in all of the planning and preparation.) From start to finish the kids were engaged, intrigued, and full of questions. With over 40 lungs and 40 + groups we had a full commons with some of the most enthusiastic students willing and eager to find out more. It was truly an experience the kids will remember.

We are now working on completing a number of projects prior to our holiday break as well as preparing for our class field trip on 15th of December when we travel to the Durham Museum in Omaha to take part in an exhibit called Identity: An Exhibition of You. We are all excited for the opportunity!

In the classroom-7th Grade

The seventh graders in Elizabeth Petersen's language arts class having been walking to the elementary to read with Chelsea Brugman's first graders.  This week the first graders got to select a book they wanted to read to the seventh graders.  The seventh graders enjoyed being able to help the younger students with their reading skills. The next time we read together the seventh graders will read their group a book they create that has the five stages of plot and a theme or lesson they are trying to teach their audience.
