Middle School Language Arts- December 2017

In the middle school, we’ve just wrapped up our second annual whole middle school participation in the National  Novel Writing Month.  As a middle school, we wrote more than a million words in one month!  Students had word goals ranging from 10,000-50,000 words, and many students who set goals over 25,000 words and beat their goals!

For December, we have started reading books about Cambodia, tying in with the unit on Southeast Asia in Social Studies.  These books are fast paced and engaging, and I love listening to the book group discussions students are having!

We are also studying the genre of poetry in our writing.  Last month was about writing as much as we could, and this month is about being economical in word usage!
