Everyone did a wonderful job on our timelines. Take a look at our individual projects and our display for ThinkShow.

We learned SO much about the many people who have influenced the way we live today.
I am attaching a PowerPoint presentation I prepared for SAT-10 Assessment Night, for those of you who did not attend. I have included an overview of what is on the test and a few sample questions. (You must have PowerPoint on your computer to view.)

I have sent home a project sheet detailing all the requirements for our timeline projects. I have also included a grading rubric. This is NOT an optional project and is due no later than Monday, March 4. This is a fun project and we have completed a timeline, in class, of Steve Jobs. Students picked their own person to research and we are super excited to see the final products.
Here’s a sample timeline we completed together in class about Steve Jobs:
Here are a few examples from last year:
I am providing each child with the poster board to put your timeline on. You can do it either horizontally or vertically. DO NOT use a full sized poster board. We will not have room to display them all for ThinkShow.
We recently learned the five parts of a friendly letter. We read several books and looked a many letters. Then, we set out on our own to write letters persuading our parents we needed a pet! Some students wrote about wanting a cat, a dog, and one group even tried to persuade their parents to let them have a PIG!!! Take a look!!
Our principal visited with us during one of our letter writing lessons. Check out the letter she wrote us after we sang our IB Song at the 4th and 5th grade Morning Meeting. Does she have all 5 parts of the letter correct? Did she indent? Do you see different types of sentences?
Yesterday we went to Playhouse on the Square and saw the musical “Annie”. This was probably the best play I’ve seen in 15 years of teaching. We received an Arts Subsidy Grant and everyone attended for free! The actors were amazing and they even had a real dog playing Sandy! If you have the opportunity to go see this, GO!!!
