This week students turned in their finished landform dictionaries. For the most part they did a great job. I think their work was some of the best I have seen during the past few years. Also, during the second half of class, we continued to practice keyboarding and then researched some famous landmarks.
Students are starting to seem comfortable with being 6thgraders. They have settled into routines and are starting to behave like “middle-schoolers”. However, we are still working on transitions between activities. Many of them think a change in activity is the perfect time to talk with their peers. So we will continue to work on switching gears efficiently in order that time is not wasted.
