All the news that’s fit to blog

There was a great energy in the classroom today, with many of the students quite enthusiastic about the presidential election results. It really is something special to see students so engaged with what is going on around them politically. To funnel that enthusiasm towards learning today, I brought a large stack of newspapers into the classroom. (I actually had to go to 4 stores to get enough copies, it seems that more people than usual were interested in reading about such a historic occasion.) We spent a little time acquainting ourselves with the newspaper format and layout, and then the students got an opportunity to peruse several sections and read some articles pertaining to the different people and issues from the election yesterday. I’m working on getting copies of the newspaper more often to keep students updated on current events, so you can soon look forward to having them come home with smudgy newspaper ink on their fingers and critical thoughts about current events on their minds.


  1. Language Arts: Vocabulary identification and story. Students will identify words as comparatives or superlatives and then write a story with six vocabulary words in it.
  2. Mathematics: Study Link page 57 – Angle Measures
  3. Reading: Read for 20 minutes and write in your pink reading log.
