Language Arts Field Day
Freedom Middle School, a 7th and 8th grade school of approximately 650 students, is celebrating the school’s commitment to language arts education. Students are participating in the first ever language arts “field day” on Tuesday, May 20, and Wednesday, May 21. During this time, students competed in events linked to curriculum standards, such as Complement Three-Legged Race, The Writing Modes Hula Hoop Relay, Vocabulary Water Balloon Toss, and What the Genre? Book Balancing Relay.
Also, the students have created a reading chain representing the numerous books that they have read this school year. Students are excited to see how long the chain actually is. It will be amazing to see how much they have accomplished this school year represented by a paper chain with the book names included! The language arts teachers are extremely proud of their language arts students and their growth as readers this school year.
The students will link the paper chain and measure it on the front lawn of the school (750 New Highway 96 West in Franklin) at 12:45 p.m. Wednesday, May 21. Language Arts Field Day will take place all day (7:45 a.m. until 2:15 p.m.).
