6th grade homeroom: We are going to be starting a read aloud of the book "Wonder". The students will have their own "Wonder" reflection journal that they will write in every time they hear it read aloud. This is one of my favorite books with an extremely powerful message that people, of all ages, should hear.
6th grade-We are reading “The Lightning Thief” which goes along with our unit on Mythology, its purposes, and its elements
7th grade-We are reading “A Long Walk to Water” which goes along with our unit on exploring the experiences of people of Southern Sudan during and after the Second Sudanese Civil War. We are focusing our attention on the theme of the book, which is 'Individuals are able to survive in challenging environments in remarkable ways,' and finding evidence to support this theme.
8th grade-We are reading “Inside Out and Back Again” which goes along with our unit on refugees. Students will develop their ability to read and understand complex text as they consider the challenges of fictional and real refugees
