Many of you may or may not know that 7th graders are currently reading the book City Of Ember. It’s such a good book according to the people who finished reading it. “I love the part when they find the new city.”

                    Every student in Pre-AP English is currently reading COE, or has finished it.  Students received the book 4 weeks ago and have to be finished Monday February, 3rd.

You have to read the book anytime you’re free to do so.  During school, afterschool, and at home. The teachers recommend reading the book after their class. “I love how it kept me entertained throughout the whole book,” says Vivienne Martinez (7).

Students are reading it for this blog project; students have to write 7 different blogs using 7 different writing techniques.

The book is about Lina and Doon also about how they live in an underground city. They both want to get out of the city for different reasons.

Garner Plans It Out

Garner Agenda book

This semester Garner supplied the students with a spring 2013 Student Planner (agenda book). Students can write in their agenda what they have been doing all through the day in their classes. The agenda also comes with a calendar that shows the holidays and special events that are coming up. Some students say it’s great having an agenda because they can be more organized.  If a student forgets if they had homework or not they could just look in their agendas. Lauren Galvan (8) says, “I don’t like the new agendas because it’s more work.”

Gissell Alcazar (8) says, ” It takes away time but I does make me more organized.” Agendas are useful to some student but others find them annoying to be carrying around. Overall, though, students should feel a little more organized as they begin school in 2013.
