7th Grade Self-Contained ELA and SS

Welcome to FALL

We have been busy with getting into our routines, Pre-Testing, and Patriot Games! If your student did not tell you about Patriot Games-ask!

Each student has recieved points for Working, being Organized, being Respectful, and being Kind. I am VERY proud of our class. These points can be used to buy things at the school store on Fridays or in a few weeks, the classroom store. 

As long as a student remains referral free, he or she can participate in the next PBIS event (Fall Festival) scheduled for early November 


We are currrently working on Story Elements and everyone has developed their character(s) for a short story they will write. This week, we will continue to work on setting and move into problems and solutions. 


Social Studies: 

We have learned about landforms and are now learning about different types of goevernment around the world. Each student will soon research a country in class and make a "Passport" as a country project. 


Each Monday I will post your Reading Log and Sight Word Spelling List.  I am sending home spelling lists for October 15th, with a quiz on Friday, October 19th.

  • Spelling packets will be given in class and each child has the opportunity to finsh this in class. If your child is unable to complete it in class, I will have them take it home
  • Spelling Quizes are going to be each Friday
  • Reading Logs are differentiated per student 
  • I expect students to read for 15 minutes a night, Monday-Thursday

This Week at John Hanson:

Monday October 8-Friday October 12

Monday 10/08: No School

Tuesday 10/09: PICTURE DAY!!!! Interims issued at end of day


**There is a Science Field Trip scheduled for our class on October 19th-please look for the permission slip. Our ELA class will be going as a group.


As I get to know your students, I see more and more potential! 


Have a great week!

Mrs. Wilson
