Seventh Grade

Welcome to 7th grade!


Each quarter students complete a book report on a book of their choice to share with their class.  It is a wonderful opportunity for all of us to hear about other great book choices.

We read a variety of novels. We enjoy discussing and growing our reading skills. Each novel presents new characters, themes, and lessons to carry with us.

Weekly, I have one on one conferences with students.  This gives me a great opportunity to know my students better as readers, their strengths and areas to offer support, and to get to learn more about their preferences.  I love getting to know my students so personally.

Writing opportunities abound.  We will write essays for the DAR, completed research projects with Windows Movie Maker presentations, History Fair projects, debates, and will complete a term paper before the end of the year.  We will grow as writers by stretching our writing skills in a variety of tasks and practicing using citations to avoid plagiarism. We continue to stretch our skills with more project based learning opportunities every year.

Please contact me at with any questions or concerns. 

Thank you!
