5th Grade Celebration: Slide Template

Your teacher posted a slide template to Edmodo a couple of weeks ago. You need to complete this and send it by email or post to Edmodo by May 15th. If you change fonts and colors (which you are welcome to do), please make the font dark so that it can be seen during the presentation. Let your teacher know if you have questions.
