Intermediate School News: October 5 – October 11, 2015

6th Grade English

Mrs. McQueen’s 6th Grade English class, students are reading Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech. As the students read, they are taking the journey across the country with the main character using Google Lit Trips. Students will journal as they “travel” in Google Earth. This is a great way for students to get a feel for the exciting things that the characters experience in the story.


Mrs. McQueen’s 6th Grade English students will be entering a “1st Line Contest” presented by Scope Scholastic. Scholastic has paired with the author, Linda Sue Park. Students all over the country will contribute what they feel a best “1st Line” will be for a short story. The winning student’s 1st line will be the start of a short story in a coming issue of Scope Scholastic magazine.
