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.
