7A & 7B Social Studies and Language Update

Assalam Alaikum,

Here is an update on what we have been in doing in Language Arts and Social Studies as well as what to expect this week inshAllah.

Language Arts

The students have been working very hard on their short stories over the past week.  Both grades have been working at different schedules.  This week we will be working on telling personal anecdotes and designing posters.

  • 7A short stories were due today.  
  • 7B short stories are due on Wednesday, November 17.
  • 7A and 7B: The students will work on presenting a personal anecdotes to the class on Wednesday, November 19.  I have already spoken to the students about the expectations for this assignment. They were also given the rubric to help them succeed as they plan their anecdotes.  This is meant to be a fun presentation that should only last for about 3 minutes.  
  • 7A and 7B Posters: I will provide students with clear instructions, rubrics as well as poster paper. They will be given time in class to design/brainstorm their posters and to receive feedback from their peers.  The final posters are due Monday, November 24.  Please note that no late posters will be accepted without a parental note.  

Social Studies

Alhamdolelah we are done with chapter 2! Students have submitted three HW assignments for a grade and will have their test this Thursday, November 20 inshAllah.  I have also given students a review sheet last week.  We will spend one review session in class this week.  Students who have completed their HW as well as their review sheet should have no problem doing well on the test inshAllah.

Its getting cold and snowy!  Students are still showing up in only sweaters, not hats, no boots and no gloves. Please have your child dress appropriately for the weather. Students also need to bring in door shoes or our class will become wet, slippery and muddy.

Girl's Gym
A friendly reminder that the girls have swimming this Wednesday inshAllah.
