Welcome to Room 8′s blog! One of the things I like to do is to hike; this is a picture from my summer vacation near Lake Tahoe. I am a little afraid of heights, so after my daughter took my picture, I moved away from the cliff’s edge! Tell us something you like to do!
Hi everyone that was in Team 28 last year! There have been some interesting comments lately from Mackenzie and Jake and many others. I think we need a post for alumni! This year’s sixth graders are about to head to science camp… any advice for them? I miss all of you!Filed under Uncategorized | Comments (55)
This post starts out on open house then goes on to summer because I haven’t gotten around to any new posts! It is fun to read the occasional summer comment!Filed under Uncategorized | Comments (55)
Use your stellar internet research skills to find a famous Greek from ancient times that is intriguing to you. Print out a picture (of a statue or painting), information about their achievements, and at least one famous quote and bring to school by Tuesday, May 13th. I began with a search for “ancient Greeks” and found the people site I showed you in class. I will try and give you a list of possible Greeks on Monday.Filed under Uncategorized | Comments (12)
Your next writing assignment is to write a persuasive essay convincing the public to “JOIN, GIVE, or DO” something. You will need to choose a cause important to you, research the issue, and write a convincing essay. Your essay should be between 500-750 words and should include a clear call to action! Here is a site called “do something . org” to help you get started. You can also choose to do something more locally focused. Post any other good research sites or ideas or questions you have here so others can help. Try Caroline’s site “good search” instead of mine. It’s better.Filed under Uncategorized | Comments (18)
