Our Week in Review by Student Journalist - Parker

This week in literacy we worked on point of view using Pixar short movie trailers. We got into groups and we were supposed to write summaries in 3rd person (omniscient, limited and objective), 1st person and second person point of view. Then, we went to the back table and talked with Mrs. Archambeau about our group’s short film. We filled out a diagram that listed the plot’s conflict, rising action, climax, and falling action. We did the project again in whole group. We watched “Mike’s New Car” and Mrs. Archambeau made a plot diagram and we filled it out and told her what to write.

And then in PE we did fitness testing, foursquare and basketball. In math we have been learning about long division with decimals and fractions. Mrs. Archambeau got menus from Alfredo’s Pizza and we had to do this project. On a piece of paper, we had to plan a lunch, and dinner party. We had to see how much each meal would cost and divide by as many people were in our group.
