Reading Round Up
We have finished our final major project of the year, our historical figure research. Students did a great job determining if sources were reliable and paraphrasing the information they gathered. I love reading their research books, because I always learn new things about interesting people.
The end is near! Are you ready for summer? I will be submitting one last book order on May 20th. If you would like to order, please use the link above to order online. My paper flyers were inadvertently recycled, so this is the only ordering method available this month. Books will be delivered before school is out.
Last week the students worked on finishing their research projects. I was impressed with their finished books. The students celebrated their hard work on the research project by sharing their books with the class today! Students moved from table to table leaving positive comments on their peers books.
This week we took a break from big writing projects. The students created poetry with their articles they printed. They were to find words in their article to create the poem. After they found their words, they drew an image on the page that represented their historical figure.
Next week, we will discuss memoirs!

We are working on building our model rockets. One note, it looks like the weather may not cooperate for painting the rockets next week. If so, we will just bump the launch date to the following week when the weather is suitable.
