There’s nothing like a good argument! Mrs. Gossler’s 8th grade ELA classes started the Argument/Debate Unit with some quick and fun topics. Starbucks or Dunkin’, paper books or Chromebooks, bottled water or tap water – just a few of the fun topics the students got to stand up for (literally!) and defend! Next up – writing an argument essay using evidence to support opinion.
During our food unit, students plan a brunch after a shopping spree on supermarché sites. It was surprising how many of them kept to their budget!
Students started off the New Year right with thinking about words that INSPIRE! Each student thought up their own “Three Words to Inspire the World” and made a poster that we displayed outside our classroom for others to see. Next up, each student is making their own video clip displaying or acting out their three words which we will use to make a class video. Happy New Year everyone!
Sixth grade students having lunch, talking, working on their best strategy playing the game King of Tokyo in the Gifted Support room. We have a ton of fun learning how to play strategy games during lunch and learn!
