Seventh-graders Write Half-minute Horror Stories

How scared can you get in just thirty seconds? 

Ms. Knecht's English 7 classes wrote their own Half-Minute Horror stories! Although these stories may have taken only thirty seconds to read, Ms. Knecht's students worked hard on their stories for weeks! From studying examples, to brainstorming their own unique ideas, to writing multiple drafts and working with their writing groups, to sharing their final stories with the class, Ms. Knecht's students showed they are true authors! 

Check out some of their best sentences posted outside Ms. Knecht's classroom, room 35.

Readers Focus on Characters

Ms. Knecht's Reading for Enjoyment students transformed into some of their favorite book characters last week! 

You could find Dumbledore, Percy Jackson, everyone's favorite wimpy kid, Greg, and more hanging out and getting to know each other at the Reading for Enjoyment Halloween Party. But, they couldn't reveal their identity until the end of the party! They did a great job trying to guess each other's characters and bringing their own characters to life.

ESL Class Honors Loved Ones and Writes Haikus

In October our SFJHS ESL class learned words relating to autumn and wrote haikus to demonstrate their understanding. 

Students also brought pictures and shared stories of their deceased loved ones in honor of Dias de los Muertos last week. Many faculty members joined our celebration by placing a photo (or memento) on the altar in Mrs. Thompson's room to show their love for family members they have lost. 

As you can see, the display was a beautiful tribute to those now departed.
