Identity and The Outsiders

   In the past few weeks we have been reading the Outsiders for our Identity unit. The book ties in with the theme of the unit, "How do  we shape and form identity?". The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton  is about two groups of people, the socs and the greasers, fighting. Their identities affect how they act, who they hangout with and how they feel. In 7th and 8th grade we are learning a lot about ourselves, and  reading/discussing The Outsiders.

Math With Dr. Sharma

On September 21, 2016 Professor Dr. Sharma came to Main Street Middle School to visit the seventh grades math classes as a guest teacher. He taught us how to count down by 2 and 2/7.  We also got to play a little bit with some blocks. We learned about similar dimensions as well. We hope that he will be visiting several times this year.

PLP Reboot

      We have been rebooting our PLP's to set them up for our next school year.  We have spent 3 or 4 days updating and changing our PLP's.  Mr.Maguire and Mr.Rosenberg have helped and guided us through this process.  We have done everything from deleting tabs, to setting up our own blogs and putting links in our PLP's.  We also have had fun decorating our PLP's and we still aren't done.  Here is a picture of some kids rebooting the PLP's.
