Congratulations Mikey for becoming the December student of the month. Keep up the good work!!!
Field Trip: As a reward for good behavior, using Leap’s level system, students will be earning a field trip to the Monster’s Hockey Game in February. Permission slips will be sent home, however this doesn’t necessarily mean each child has earned the trip.
This month we did our project based unit based off of the novel November Blues by Sharon Draper. The students really enjoyed the novel and all the activities during the unit.
When November Nelson loses her boyfriend, Josh, to a pledge stunt gone horribly wrong, she thinks her life can't possibly get any worse. But Josh left something behind that will change November's life forever, and now she's faced with the biggest decision she could ever imagine. How in the world will she tell her mom? And how will Josh's parents take the news? She's never needed a friend more.
Jericho Prescott lost his best friend when he lost his cousin, Josh, and the pain is almost more than he can bear. His world becomes divided into "before" and "after" Josh's death. He finds the only way he can escape the emptiness he feels is to quit doing the things that made him happy when his cousin was alive, such as playing his beloved trumpet, and take up football, where he hopes the physical pain will suppress the emotional. But will hiding behind shoulder pads really help? And will his gridiron obsession present him from being there for his cousin's girlfriend when she needs him most?
Jericho and November, locked together in pain from the past and fear for the future, find that the blues can resonate in the youngest of lives, and that truth is sometimes found in the smallest rays of sunshine.
The sequel to The Battle of Jericho is a no-holds-barred look at what happens when life doesn't go as planned, by the acclaimed author of the 2007 Coretta Scott King Award winner Copper Sun.
See you next time!!!!!!! Ms. Bethea
