week 22 by Hana
This week we have officially started the Civil War unit with dispatches, journals, dice of destiny, and combat cards. What this is each student has a character from either a group for the Union or Rebel side and competes to score the most points. The Union has four groups and the Rebels have two. For instance I’m a former black slave name Isaac Jefferson and am a Glory Roader on the Union side.
We have also picked topics for the writing portion of the assignment (rough drafts will be due on Valentines day). For this project the writing doesn’t have to be a report. It can be journal entries or any other creative idea.
We have also started the grammar lessons off with Hana and Jenna doing a rap on apostrophes and homophones. Grammar lessons will continue every Wednesday.
After finishing S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders, we starting watching the movie . We are half-way through and having fun comparing and contrasting the differences.
Don’t forget to keep working on your space project because the space museum is coming up on February 27th!
Also on Valentines day there will be a valentines dance down at Springdale after school from 4-6, more details to come.
