States project that correlates with ELA- Project is due Friday, March 4. Students will have a total of SEVEN class days to work on project. If project is not completed at the end of seven days, it becomes homework.

Students must bring their shoe box to class if they have not already done so.


Please note that purchasing items for the project is NOT required. In fact, I'd prefer that they use recycled/unwanted items and construction paper.
