Week one is in the books! And I would say it was a great first week!
I’ve been so impressed with all the students. They have really handled the transition to middle school like they are old pros! I’ve really enjoyed meeting and getting to know this amazing group of kids so far. In class we wrote Biographical Poems describing some of our likes, needs, and fears.
Our first topic for Social Studies is maps. The students learned about different types of maps and the basic elements of a map. The acronym for the map elements is, TALDOGS. You can ask your student what each letter stands for.
Next Tuesday there will be a quiz on the maps and TALDOGS. The students also received an assignment to make a map of their bedrooms. Students may be working on that over the weekend, it is due on Wednesday.
Have a great weekend!
