Every week one student in our class gets to sit out the super quiz and write the weekly update on our class. This week’s update was done by 8th grader Clare Babcock. Thanks, Clare!
This week in Mr. Houck’s class we started working on our Earth models as well as our Earth metaphor models. The Earth models we are creating with a partner, and the metaphor models are a solo project.
For vocab this week we played an intense game of vocab charades. Teams were boys against girls, and of course the girls won. In other competition news, in gym class we played a soccer-type game, which the girls won also. Their reward is being able to sit on the couches for a full week during silent reading.
We also interviewed fellow classmates about their summer vacation. Altogether it was a fabulous and productive week in room eight.
