Welcome to 7th and 8th Grade
Mr. Paulsen's Classroom
News and Notes
Week of Dec. 9-13
Religion: Pastor Hirsch and Pastor Reichert are stepping in to all religion classes to give me some administrative release time and the students could not be in more capable hands!
Reading: We will be looking to start our new novel soon, but will focus on our narrations this week so that we are ready to go for the Christmas service! We also will spend some extra time with A.R. this week as we are getting close to the end of Q2.
Math Course 2: We just finished another unit and the students are doing very well. They also are pushing themselves in Khan Academy which is building even more background knowledge.
Math Course 3: Volume, surface area, perimeter and area have been on repeat in lessons the past few weeks. We will look to take a step past those this coming week.
Algebra 1: Linear and algebraic equations are the name of the game as we move forward in our lessons.
English: We are finishing our larger unit on prepositions and will look to test on them early next week.
Spelling: Unit 14 this week.
5-6 Science: We have started our new STEM lab on DNA and will aim to finish prior to Christmas. We also are exploring ecosystems in our textbook this chapter.
7-8 Science: We have a new STEM this week as well as a new unit. It should be a blast!
Hymn of the Week: #23
Meet Our Head Teacher, Mr. Michael Paulsen
My name is Michael (or Mike) Paulsen, and I have the privilege to be your 7th-8th grade teacher as well as serve as the schools Head Teacher.
I grew up in Oconomowoc, WI. I attended Luther Preparatory School in Watertown, WI and met my future wife there before graduating in 2012. I then attended Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN, where I played basketball (the best sport in my opinion) all four years and graduated in May 2016.
I was lucky enough to marry Kinzie Paulsen, our Kindergarten teacher, in July 2015. We are excited about being part of the ministry here at St. Paul’s Lutheran!
