WELCOME to Slidell Junior High School. My name is Rebecca Harvey and I will be your child’s RNC teacher this year. I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know you and your child a little more and am looking forward to a happy and productive school year.
We will be covering numerous interesting units with in-class projects to enhance student learning. I strive to maintain a safe, positive, upbeat environment for students to learn and grow.
We strive to promote good behavioral choices throughout the school day and will be working to earn class rewards for making good choices both in and out of the classroom.
This week we will be graphing and using Reflex Math on the computer. We will be using News 2 You to cover Remembering 2017 and graphing, time and word problems.
This week we will be continuing our discussion on gravity and magnets.

We will be continuing a discussion about Democracy. The students will learn about voting how we vote. We will vote in our classroom (on cookies).
We will be using News 2 You to talk about Remebering 2017, using punctuation, syllables, sentence writing, and paragraph composing. We will read the leveled reader It's Our Tradition from the Unique Learning Curriculum and answer WH questions and a quiz on the story. We will be finishing the Adapted Novel, Call of the Wild and finish answering the Character and setting questions. The students will learn how to site evidence in a text.

This week starts day 80 of school!
If anyone has popcorn that they can spare our class loves popcorn and tends to go through it quite quickly. Also needed are Clorox wipes or baby wipes. Flu season is quickly approaching and I would like to nip it in the bud before it reaches our classroom!
Please continue checking folders and agendas! We are having a great school year!
