Our November Read-a-thon yielded over 32,000 reading minutes school-wide! $720 dollars was raised to support Language Arts classroom libraries. Students who opened an account received a pajama day ticket. Many students earned lunch with the principal by reading 500 minutes. Several earned a pizza party for recording 1000 minutes. Thank you for your support in promoting literacy at BRMS. It was a big hit with students!
6th and 7th grade students learn to make Bibliographies or "Works Cited" Pages in Google Docs in MLA 8 format. Additionally, students are taking digital notes in Google Keep and practicing the 7 X 7 rule (no more than 7 bullets and 7 words per bullet). 7th and 8th graders are beginning to create in-text citations using MLA guidelines. Students learn how to use keywords for searching, and how to identify reliable sources. Direct instruction takes place in a co-teaching model, specifically in 6th grade Health classes, 7th grade Social Studies classes, and 8th grade Language Arts classes.
