HFS Grade 8 Weekly Collections

November 20, 2009

Dear HFS Community Members,

I hope that our 5th annual Grandparents and Special Friends Day affords members of your family or special friends of your family the opportunity to be a part of a community that I am blessed to enjoy each day. This week I had the pleasure of witnessing the following scenes within our school…

Primary Class: a spirited review of the components of a story Ms. Grossman had just finished reading to the group. In that review, the students identified and described with glee the functions of various forms of punctuation – commas (“Like little periods!”), periods (“Stop signs!”), question marks, quotation marks, and apostrophes (“Ummmm…”).

Intermediate Class: Reading. Two fourth grade students engaged in building word webs to deconstruct how an author had built a description of a scene and a character within the story. One provides a very low key and matter of fact description of the assignment and its purpose to the Head of School and a guest. Later that day, the same child rushes back upstairs after a class wide game of Knockout on the basketball court. No need for written description here. Fun is etched all over the smiles on their faces!

6th and 7th Grades: These classes are enjoying and benefiting from the co-teaching of Experimental Design with Mrs. Foley and Mr. Norton. While this is thinly veiled preparation for Science Fair projects, there is special delight and interest in placing bottles of water in the faculty workroom’s freezer to test a hypothesis. The students seem to be enjoying the mid-semester change of format, too! Additionally, the 7th grade has spent the week preparing for its big day of Spanish on Friday. The students are abuzz with excitement as they prepare decorations, to write thank you cards, and research cultural aspects of Latin America.

8th Grade: The minutes in Mr. Pickard’s English class seem to whiz by at a sped faster than light. Students engage in quick conversation about colonial literature and connecting the content of Mary Rowlandson’s experience to areas of study in social studies. “Is this the same King Phillip’s War we learned about in social studies?” Eighth graders rush to get to Mr. Pickard’s class with their book report placards, dioramas, game boards, and costumes ready for November’s book reporting. They are as eager and as enthusiastic about presenting their book and themselves as they were nervous and shy as sixth grade students. They have begun the great leap forward from HFS to high school destinations TBD. Those places will be lucky as we’ve been to have them.

In peace,

Jonathan

NOTES from Humanities…

English: Eighth graders have had a busy week in English 8!  They started off with presenting book reports on Monday, and the class continues to show that they have really advanced in their presentation skills.  All students seem much more comfortable in speaking to the group, and they encourage each other with positive evaluative comments.  We remain in the process of carefully reviewing for our grammar tests on nouns and pronouns, and a cumulative test is planned for the middle of next week.  We are progressing accordingly with spelling-vocabulary, and we are now working feverishly to make up a little bit of time. In literature, we have more or less finished discussing Mary Rowlandson and her narrative of captivity with the Wampanoags during King Philip’s war.  We will be discussing next the life and poetry of Anne Bradstreet, who wrote some very effective poems during the colonial era.  I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!

Social Studies: Eighth grade social studies class focused on the events, circumstances, policy decisions, and colonial reactions that set the stage for the American Revolution. Students took copious notes on the period between the end of the French and Indian War and the 1st Continental Congress. We discussed the political savvy of the colonists as they “spun” the news of the day to advance the cause of the likes of Thomas Paine, Sam Adams, and Patrick Henry. We learned that the great “Boston Massacre” was indeed a terrible loss of life, but resulted more from antagonistic actions and poor Red Coat decision-making than intended malice. Also, “Taxation without representation” was not a desire to seek representation in Parliament (which would have had an even more deleterious effect on the colonies due to the limited representation their numbers would have commanded), but it was simply a good rallying cry to excite the English colonists’ ideals of freedom in the face of injustice. The class spent additional class time working to identify valid sources of information in support of their paragraph about their selected “mappable” variable and using the school’s NoodleTools.com account to develop a bibliography and research note cards. This is a skill they will need to use fluidly and fluently for their 2nd semester research project. Next week social studies-8 meets on Tuesday instead of the regularly scheduled science-8 classes. COFs for chapters 17-20 will be due on Tuesday and 21-22 will be due Wednesday.

NOTES from Technology…

Math:

Science: While students adjust to a different teacher, the teacher in turn adjusts to the particular capabilities and dynamics of a new HFS class.  While continuing with “chemical interactions” content, we have experimented with manners of reading, assessment, discipline, and classroom comportment that place increasing responsibility upon the students.  For students, this presents crisis but also opportunity, and all but one of the students (our self-proclaimed Peter Pan) seem to savor the idea (as an abstraction, anyway) of leaving many childish things behind and preparing themselves for high school.  Still, when given opportunity to experientially consider surface tension of water (floating a paper clip), polar solvent interacting with a nonpolar material (hydrophobic sand), and analogies to polar molecules (magnetic marbles), the inner children re-emerged.

Homework for Monday consists of two things.  One is the completion of a series of three open-book quizzes, work that was begun in class on Tuesday.  The other is to choose five personal challenge words for vocabulary exercises that we will endeavor to master with in-class experience and example, then expect to turn into recurring homework assignments as the year proceeds (see handout on this exercise in your student’s notebook).

Notes from the Business Office…

I’ve been out the last week due to a family emergency but have returned and will be in the office to answer any questions you may have regarding your student’s accounts.

Reminders…

  • Send an email/written note to the HFS office as advance notice when your child will be absent, late to school, or dismissed during the school day for any reason.
  • If your child is going home with someone other than a parent or legal guardian, please provide advance notice to the HFS office. A form is attached here for your convenience.
  • Parents: Please be sure that your children are dressed appropriately for the weather each day. Recess occurs outside whenever it is not raining. Also, our teachers like to take advantage of all the learning opportunities the outdoor world has to offer. These opportunities cannot always be planned in advance. However, they should not require any additional protection (warmth, wind, rain) than was required when leaving home for school in the morning. Thank you.
  • Parents and anyone else coming to pick-up students from After-School Study Hall, PLEASE be aware that the After-School Study Hall is intended for quiet study time so that students can get a head start on homework and/or seek assistance from teachers when they are available. On several occasions recently parent conversations both in the after-school study hall room and in the hallway outside the room have interfered with student work and the proctor’s ability to maintain a productive atmosphere. Thank you, in advance, for being aware of this concern and working to help our students take advantage of the opportunity.

HFS Grade 7 Weekly Collections

November 20, 2009

NOTES from Humanities…

English: Seventh graders have had a busy week in English 7!  They started off with presenting book reports on Monday, and the class continues to show that they have really advanced in their presentation skills.  All students seem much more comfortable in speaking to the group, and they encourage each other with positive evaluative comments.  We remain in the process of carefully reviewing for our grammar tests on nouns and pronouns, and a cumulative test is planned for the middle of next week.  We are progressing accordingly with spelling-vocabulary, and we are now working on Unit 6 in our books.    We also are putting on the finishing touches on our argumentative dialogues, and students have thoroughly enjoyed writing them.  Look for some of these in our next literary magazine! I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!

Social Studies: In seventh grade social studies we are finishing our last bit of South America.  We started by introducing the Andean countries by looking at the ancient civilization of the Incas.  They inhabited the majority of the Andean area and left a large legacy in the area.  We even saw how quipus, a form or recording numbers using rope knots, is still used in parts of the Andes.  We also investigated how to more completely, thoroughly, and correctly answer questions in social studies by correcting fictitious responses to questions.  We also have identified the major physical geographic features in the Andes and how they affect the surrounding population.  In the abbreviated next week, we will look at Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Chile before we complete our look at South America the following week.

NOTES from Technology…

Math: Seventh grade math spent the week reviewing in various ways for our test on Thursday.  We estimated the height of the school and the large tree outside of HFS using similar triangles and reviewed the many different ways we can use similar figures.  We also reviewed the details of using ratios as well as scale factors to find the missing sides of a figure.

Science: 7th grade science spent the week joining forces with the 6th graders and Mr. Norton for a short course in experimental design.  We dropped eggs, mixed vinegar and baking soda, made paper airplanes and played blindfolded basketball all in an attempt to learn the art and science of identifying variables and determining whether certain situations constituted true experiments or were merely demonstrations of the laws of science. The week concluded with students converting demonstrations of static electricity and the various properties of water into true experiments of their choosing.

Students should begin thinking about topics that interest them for this year’s science fair.

HFS Grade 6 Weekly Collections

November 20, 2009

NOTES from Humanities…

Sixth graders have had a busy week in Humanities 6!  They started off with presenting book reports on Monday, and the class showed that they have really advanced in their presentation skills.  Most seem much more comfortable in speaking to the group, and they encourage each other with positive evaluative comments.  We reviewed carefully for our grammar tests on nouns and pronouns, and we had the real deal today.  We are progressing accordingly with spelling-vocabulary, and we are now working on Unit 6 in our books.  In social studies, we have been studying the contributions of the Sumerians, the Assyrians, and the Babylonians.  Students have prepared flash cards on our vocabulary and have progressed extremely well indeed.  We will be finishing up our descriptive compositions on a grandparent or a special friend very soon.  I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!

NOTES from Technology…

Math: This week in sixth grade math we completed our look at fractions, decimals, and percents focusing mostly on percents at the end.  We reviewed all that we know about fractions, decimals, and percents for the second half of the week in preparation for next week.  Next Monday, November 23, we will complete our unit with a test.  Also, our skills workbooks are due on Monday.

Science: This week in sixth grade science we have spent our time with the seventh grade learning about experimental design, independent variables, dependent variables, trials, and levels of a variable.  We have clarified the difference between a demonstration and an experiment.  It has been a busy week with a filled classroom.  We finished the week with a field trip to Babikow Greenhouses where we learned about plant propogation and greenhouses in general.

NOTES from Explorations…

Computer Technology: I’ve been out the last week due to a family emergency but have now returned.   This week we worked on our typing skills and I will be evaluating the student’s progress.  Next class we will be delving deeper into Mac operations and working more intricately with Word.

HFS Lower School Weekly Collections

November 20, 2009

NOTES from Primary Grade…

This week the students discussed important people and places in their community.  We will continue to discuss why they are important and different types of communities.  This Friday we will be traveling to downtown Bel Air and visit some important people to the community.  Each student will be given a “scavenger hunt,” which they will fill out as we go from place to place.  We will be finishing our Air and Weather unit after the holidays with a big jeopardy review before their assessment.  For shared reading this week we read “Move Over!” and the students acted out the different characters and they did a wonderful job.  Thursday of this week we got to spend some time with our elders at the senior center creating lovely center pieces that will hopefully be displayed in your home or on your Thanksgiving table.

NOTES from Intermediate Grade…

NOTES from Explorations…

Primary Spanish: In class, we introduced the family theme and the kids learned how to say mom, dad, brother, sister, son, daughter, grandfather, and grandmother in Spanish.  The students practiced introducing their families using their photos..for example Esta es mi mamá (This is my mom).  For homework, the students are asked to bring in a family photo if they have not already. It will be used in a Thanksgiving project on Tuesday.  They also have to draw a picture of their families and identify the people for example, mi mamá (my mom), mi papá, etc.  We also reviewed the letters of the alphabet that we have learned thus far and introduced new ones.  For homework, the students are asked to practice the following letters…A-B-C-C-D-E-F-G-H-I-J-K-LL  Remember that children can practice pronunciation of words and review vocabulary using http://www.frenchspanishonline.com/beginnerspanish/freespanish.html
