The Patriot Progress
C5 Upcoming Two Weeks: May 2-May 13
How Can We Impact Our Environment?
This week we are featuring Ms. Glassford's project group. Students are completing a read aloud of the novel Longleaf by Roger Reid. This book is set in Alabama's own Conecuh National Forest. As students read about Jason's journey through Concecuh National Forest, they research all about the various animals one might find in this ecosystem. Students will wrap up this project group time by finishing Jason's adventure in the book and completing a research journal full of information and reflections about the ecosystem only a few hours from where we live.
A great way to receive exceeding on this assignment is to have an excellent opinion essay with clear, strong reasons and evidence that extend into four or five paragraphs. This will be the last major writing component for this school year. Your students have truly come so far with their writing skills. Each of you should be so proud of the progress your student has made!
We are also excited about the new book Bridge to Terabithia. We will be building different types of bridges in math to go along with this book. Please stay tuned for more information on this.
Students should be considering which artifact they wish to include in their presentation. The artifact should be meaningful to their time period and their topic. We have decided that NO WEAPONS will be allowed to be used as artifacts. We so appreciate your help, and we hope you continue to have conversations with students about their favorite historical topics from this year.
