Mrs. Coup took all of the 8th graders to see a theater production of six short stories by the Chamber Theater Company, October 9. They enjoyed seeing the stories “The Raven”, “The Tell-Tale Heart”, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”, “The Monkey’s Paw”, “The Necklace”, and “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County”. A few of these they will be studying later in class. They loved seeing the stories come to life through live theater.

Mrs. Griffiths' MTSS group is working on technical reading and writing. Technical reading requires you to follow (sometimes complex) instructions, such as a manual used by a mechanic. So students were divided into groups of 2 or 3 students. The students were given instructions on how to construct a pirate out of Lego pieces. Students pictured were trying to find the necessary Lego pieces to construct their pirate. When the groups finish, they will create their own figure and write out instructions for someone else to follow.
