Middle School Language Arts: June 2012
We wrapped up our mystery fiction unit with a variety of activities. We played the board game, Clue, then watched the movie. We have read a few of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories, and then during the last week of school, we watched one of the episodes of the modern BBC series, “Sherlock.” Finally, to finish off the year, we will be playing a murder mystery role playing game. What fun we have had!
In order to reduce summer lag, make sure your middle school student keeps up their skills by continuing to read (beach novels work!) as well as write (summer journaling?) daily! See you all in the fall!
