Newsletter LA 678 October 9

 What's up in grades 6 7 8? Here's our newsletter for October 9.






Grade 8 & 7
Eighth and seventh grade students attended the college fair at LRHS last week. Students learned about different opportunities for careers of interest to them from seventeen different colleges and training centers.


Grade 8 students received their laptops. The Nespelem School Board recognizes the need for students to not only learn digital citizenship, but to also participate in collaborative, connected, positive ways with others students. They need to read the web, create  the web, and do this in clear, concise ways to ensure their message is received by the intended audience. This is the new literacy also recognized by our new standards, The Common Core State Standards.

Grade 7 & 6

Last year, sixth grade students taught fifth grade students about Digital Citizenship.


Now those former sixth grades students are blogging regularly as seventh graders. Be sure to check out their

posts here:

And the new grade six students try their hand as well here:

Remember that our Kidblogs are our drafts, our chance to build fluency. We hope to see better writing and editing as the year progresses. Watch us grow!
