Tie-Breaker Needed for Harwood Jr. High 2018 Grammar Jenga Championship
Posted 05/09/2018 09:00AM

Harwood Junior High seventh graders battled for the title of 2018 Grammar Jenga Champions! In order to better prepare for the STAAR Writing test, students played ten rounds of Jenga – each time answering a STAAR revising or editing question. In order for the class to pull a Jenga piece, each group had to get the question correct and use all of their PROVES testing strategies. As reigning champs, Gauntt-lings were out to battle the McKay-niacs for another win. However, in the end, it was split down the middle with a tie. The Gauntt-lings and McKay-niacs will meet again in May to final break the tie by playing one last round of Jenga to prepare for the STAAR Reading.
