6th grade Has Talent

Mrs. Valentine's 6th grade Reading class recently finished reading "The Giver" by Lois Lowry.  As a way to help deepen the students' understanding, they were given choices for their follow-up activity such as to create a role-play, produce a PowerPoint or Google Slide, or create a game board among other things.  They were so creative and seemingly had a blast preparing these activities in which they presented to the class.  I was impressed with their ideas and presentation skills and total enthusiasm.  Putnam County has some great kids and I feel blessed every day to be one of their teachers.

Social Studies Study Island

Mr. Haugen's 8th Grade Social Studies Class will begin using Study Island this semester. Students should already be familiar with the program from other core classes. It is the hope that by assigning modules as homework, students will interact with the material more, while mastering the concepts taught. Parents and guardians can help this process by asking their student each night if they are caught up with Study Island homework. If you have any questions as we set sail, please contact Mr. Haugen at chaugen@putnamcountyr1.net or (660) 947-3347
