What's New in Grade 7 ELA: Update 10/3

September was a great month; spectacular weather and good times while getting back into "school mode" after summer vacation.
Grade 7 students have been reading, (ask about their "independent reading books") writing (ask to see their journals) and participating in some excellent class discussions (ask about our conversations regarding "successful people").
As I write this on Saturday morning, I'm reflecting on this past week. We read together a version of Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."
Also, Jill Kennedy, library media specialist, visited class to share some book talks. The books she recommended are: The Thickety, The Jumbies, and Magonia.
This coming week we'll be doing some research about the setting of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," Sleepy Hollow, (formerly North Tarrytown) NY.
