Language Arts: Character Analysis

Grade 6 and 7 Language Arts students are learning how to analyze different characters, how setting and relationships affect them, and writing essays about these characters.

“We learned about the importance of character traits and how they affect the outcome of stories,” said Nate.

“We’re learning about character traits, how to study them and get deeper into the story, and how to annotate feelings and special traits,” said Elizabeth.

Students in Mrs Robinson’s class are reading and analyzing a book of essays entitled “Popularity”. The book is part of the Lucy Calkins curriculum, developed by Teachers’ College of New York (USA).

Welcome to Concordiaville

Welcome to our community!  Our construction company of nineteen second graders (plus a few other very helpful hands) are delighted to show you the suburb of Concordiaville and the rural area that feeds it. Grade 2 students learned about working together as a team to create something magical as well as meeting Social Studies standards.  Concordiaville is quite a delightful place, equipped with a central park, houses, stores, a gas station, and of course, our very own multi-story school!

Grade 8 Colonial Studies

The 8th Grade Social Studies class held a Colonial Fair as part of its focus on US History. The goal was to persuade settlers from Europe that their colony provided the most opportunity and was the best destination for settlement. The students took turns presenting as a representative from their colony and also pretending to be an indecisive European settler who was hesitant to make the long, risky journey across the ocean. Before getting into America's history with other countries around the world, the course begins with America's early history and how the United States of America started with the 13 Original Colonies.
