Hard-Working Writers and Grammarians

Our 6th-grade writers have been hard at work. Some amazing paragraphs and fictitious stories were created. Students went through the entire writing process to create a final draft.

We’ve been learning a lot of grammar to become better writers. Adjective Scattergories was a huge hit!

Here’s a sneak peek:

Virtual Tour of 9/11 Museum

Unbelievably, the 19th anniversary of 9/11 just passed. To remember this tragic day and honor the heroes and innocent lives lost, we took a virtual tour of the 9/11 museum and memorial. Never forget!

To honor our WO Police and Fireman, my students created letters, CANVA designs, Word Art, and more. I’m so proud of their hard word and final display. Copies were given to our community’s heroes (WO Police and Fireman). A special thanks to Cooper T. and Jaidan S. for creating beautiful displays for our heroes.

Virtual 9/11 Tour

Last Friday, our students virtually toured the 9/11 Memorial and Museum in New York. We saw the north and south ponds and stood right where the towers used to be. We went inside the museum and saw several artifacts from this tragic day.

Our children were very respectful and did a great job on the tour. Here’s a little sneak peek!
