I am excited about the new reading series, MyPerspectives, that we will be using in middle school this year. The series encompasses reading, writing, listening, and language in each of 5 units. Each unit revolves around an essential question and topic. The students will be involved in whole class work, group work, individual work, and each unit will end with a writing/presentation project.
In addition to MyPerspectives students also have a new spelling curriculum that they will be using this year. There will be a page of spelling assigned each day with a test on Friday. The spelling lists will be on SpellingCity to give them a chance to study throughout the week.
6th Grade: Animal Allies - How can people and animals relate to each other?
7th Grade: A Starry Home - Should we make a home in space?
8th Grade: The Holocaust - How do we remember the past?
