Mrs. Hixon
Time is going quickly by as we work in our classrooms. It won’t be long ‘til Thanksgiving is here. Our students and teachers are looking forward to a break. We have been very involved with activities to help us learn and grow with the new “Core Curriculum.”
In ELA classes, students just finished a unit on narrative writing. Their next goal is to read and write about fables. The students will continue to read for the “Accelerated Reading” contest, which strengthens their comprehension skills. They are doing a wonderful job!
