All About Me:
4th Quarter Happenings
A good portion of April will be spent on state-testing and online prep or practice..so at this point there are no specific "due dates" but more class-time work days and I will determine as the time approaches when due dates will be set and I will communicate that via Infinite Campus messenger and also on my class Moodle and to your students daily in class.
This quarter the students are working using their creativity skills...
Grade 5 : All About ME multimedia presentation using Google Slides.. that the students will work on via Moodle by first completing the pre-assessment..then we will do a design tips worksheet to help them understand the HOW TO's before creating their own slideshow about themselves..and family..and likes/dislikes...favorites..and future goals.
