Seventh grade students in Mrs. Johnson’s Language Arts class at SMS are very active.  Students rotate among different stations daily.  Currently, students are reading and completing activities with A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.  Today in rotations, students were looking at specific characters and vocabulary in this famous story.  Students used context clues to define vocabulary words and use the in a sentence.  They then posted these sentences on Google classroom.  In another station, students were creating statements from Scrooge and then deciding how one of the Christmas ghosts would respond to these statements.  Finally, students participate in silent sustained reading.  Stationary bicycles are available during this time to encourage some physical activity while reading.
