Something of interest: Are you interested in adding 7 minutes to your life - in less than an hour? Your students might be talking about:

TED conferences (TED Talks) bring together the world's most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes or less).

On TED.com, we make the best talks and performances from TED and partners available to the world, for free. More than 1500 TED Talks are now available, with more added each week. All of the talks are subtitled in English, and many in other languages, too. These videos are released under a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND license, so they can be freely shared and reposted.


It's actually 30 minutes per night for 6th grade, but this is great research!

We have the most awesome 6th graders in the district!

  • Read EVERY day! Each student has 30 minutes of reading homework each night. 150 minutes per week. This is required and part of the reading grade.
  • What's happening in the world? Look at maps. Keep up with current events. Think about how we are connected with the rest of the world
  • Do you want to know what you will be having for lunch? You can find that on the HEB website.
  • You can use the MOOSE to send messages. A parent/guardian should be checking and signing this each night. :-)
  • BTC: This is used to track ALL behavior. If you see a sticker, this tells you that your student was on task, without being asked, following the expectations of the classroom at that time.
  • CHAMPS: If you hear your student talk about CHAMPS, these are the guidelines, used throughout West Hurst, to promote best behavior in any part of the school and during any activity. Our 6th graders have been modeling great CHAMPS behaviors in the hall, so far. We will work on this ALL YEAR! :-)

 

Conversation: Can students talk to each other during this activity?
Help: How do students get the teacher's attention and their questions answered?
Activity: What is the task/objective? What is the end product?
Movement: Can students move about during this activity?
Participation: How do students show they are fully participating? What does work behavior look/sound like?
Success: When students meet CHAMPS expectations, they will be successful!

A Little About Me

My name is Christine Lennox. In 2006 I decided to go back to school to become a teacher. I graduated from The University of Texas at Arlington in 2010 with a BA in Interdisciplinary Studies with 4-8 Middle-Level English Language Arts/Social Studies Teacher Certification.

I was fortunate to student teach at West Hurst Elementary.  As always, I am very excited about the new school year. I believe that every student is unique and has the potential to become great! It is a privilege for me to be a part of each student's educational journey. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email (see "Contact Ms. Lennox" page), or by calling the school.


The mission of the Hurst Euless Bedford Independent School district is to continue its proud tradition of excellence as a diverse, high-performing organization committed to ensuring each student is empowered today to excel tomorrow.
