3rd Grade - Myths

For their genre grid, students read two myths and chose a product in order to show their figurative understanding of the texts. Very creative! Hover over the photo to see the description of the assignment.

4th Math

We're finishing up the geometry unit and students are creating math art using geometry vocabulary.

4th Grade - Inside Out and Back Again

Students read a free verse poetry memoir where it's main character, Ha, describes the events that led her family to flee war-torn Vietnam during the Vietnam Conflict (later renamed Vietnam War). The book was filled with poem-like diary entries with abundant use of figurative language. Check out just a sampling of some amazing metaphor/simile poems where students explored imagery of their favorite holiday.

5th Grade - Red Scarf Girl

Students create physical interpretive pieces for Red Scarf Girl, a memoir about the Chinese Cultural Revolution.
