This Friday in some sections we went into an Indian legend called Cold Wind, Chinook Wind in our Social Studies text. A more violent version of the tale can be found over here...http://www.firstpeople.us/FP-Html-Legends/Chinook-Wind-Yakima.html
We are still trying to adjust to being back in from ITBS testing and everyone is pretty tired in general. Next week is Spirit Week!
One of the ways we're interacting with the textbook is to do "Sticky Note Wednesday" each week. Students write relevant comments and questions about the text on stickies, then we try to answer questions about the text. The students are coming up with some very interesting ideas and queries?
If you haven't checked out our "somewhat" weekly podcast, it's over at http://mrarnold.podbean.com/
Have a great weekend, don't forget to wear your favorite team shirt on Monday! I have a student bringing in a Florida shirt for me (in theory)....the travesty!
