The sixth grade switched gears in February after spending lots of time and energy on our Social Studies projects for the Living Wax Museum we participated in on Feb 1. Our next big project is our literature circle groups, which will be culminating in creating an advertisement for the book the students are reading. The thirteen students are reading four different books, and will be giving their presentations in March. We also wrapped up our previous read aloud book, Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians, and have started A Wrinkle in Time. Finally, we will be studying a variety of portrait styles in art class, starting with a self-portrait.
