Solar System Tic Tac Toe AND Science Test - MONDAY

Would you like to buy some cereal?

I LOVED the student's cereal box book reports! They were all so creative and fun. Of course we were all hungry listening to each student describe their delicious cereals though =0)

A special shout out to Vick for the most REAL commercial selling his cereal! He got into character and made us all want to run out to the store and buy a box.

Create Your Own Business

From a Pizza Parlor to a Hoverboard Speciality Store, the class had a lot of fun dreaming up their own businesses. I loved hearing each student present their business information as if it was a real place! Way to go everyone!
