7th Grade

September 19, 2022

Dear 7th Graders and Parents,

Welcome to Week 3. We have been working on building our classroom community and starting our content investigations. I have attached some photos.

Today students will be bringing home their first Green Slip. The Green Slip serves as a weekly progress report. Students look up their grades in RenWeb and make note of any missing assignments.  Please sign the Green Slip and return it tomorrow. Students will be graded on getting it signed and returned to help with executive skills. Grandparent signatures count too : ) !

Baker Lake – I will be contacting chaperones and those with tents to share – tomorrow.

Working On –

Reading

We have also begun reading the Adventure of Ulysses.  As Ulysses leaves Troy after the Trojan War, he has an incredible journey back home. We will have short assignments throughout the book as well as a culminating study guide and vocabulary sheet we are working on daily.

Math –

This week we continue working with integers and integer operations. Students will have practice problems daily, if they do not finish in class it will be homework.

Writing –

This week we are reviewing the Five Paragraph Essay. Student created a mind-map about something they are Good at, Like, done Umpteen times, Remember easily, and are Proud of.  This GLURP essay will be worked on in class daily.

Social Studies –

Hot Spots, as in locations of chaos in our world, is our first topic in SS this trimester.  Students will be conducting their first major research project in class for the next month.  Students will have 12 research note cards due Friday.

Grammar –

Students are investigating prepositions. We will continue practicing.


Religion –

Dear Parents,

Last week, 7th graders had an overview of the Bible.  This week students will take a deeper look into the New Testament and explore one specific book.  Don’t forget to turn in the permission form for the Middles School Retreat.  How is your child doing with service hours?

Blessings,

Mrs. Reichlin


Science –

This week in 7th science we have a short week due to MAP testing.  We will be working both days on assignments exploring the characteristics of old growth forests.
