Continue to review for exams 


Hello 7th Grade Families,

Today the 7th graders reviewed for most of class. At the be of class I showed the 7th graders an idea that came from some professional development I received yesterday. For next year in lieu of the IRN we will do responses for class novels on a website called www.weebly.com 
I showed the class the website I created and let them know that they will create one of their own--- they were very excited!
