You should know that we have been studying The Civil War for a long time. Unfortunately, this week we are almost finished up learning about The Civil War. After Spring Break we will begin to learn about the reconstruction after the the Cilvi War. It was very smart of Mr.Leone to tie in vocabulary with the Civil War. While we were writing in our daily dispatches we wrote in vocabulary words that people used in The Civil War too. At the end of the week our class makes a fun way to refresh all what learned about The Civli War we play a nice friendly game of jeopardy .
We have been put into book groups about The Civil War. Then next week (the week before spring break) all of the book groups are putting on a 5-10 min variety show about the book. The variety show should have props and costumes All students are memorizing lines. Its just a fun idea of ending our week and starting spring break.
Mr.Leone is reading aloud Enders Game by Orson Scottcard. A fiction book that is 324 pages long. Its about a 6 year old named Ender Wiggin being smarter than the average adult. Earths under attack by an alien species Who will help save man kind? They all turn to Ender Wiggin. Right now whats going on is that Ender is in the Army…. then over time Ender becomes a Commander of his own army. His Army has faced 7 battles and have won 7 out of 7. Conflict rises. Thats week 27!!
