5th Grade Publishing Party


5th Grade Writers in Mrs. Burns' ELA Class got to celebrate their finished narrative stories by toasting all the authors with some champagne (O.K. its was sparking water but we pretended). All the authors have worked very hard on revising and editing their stories to be able to tell you about a moment in their lives they will always remember.  Students then got to walk around the room and read a lot of stories. You can read some of our narrative stories at this link :Kidblog

Congrats Authors!

Room 232 Snoopy Squad built a scale model of the solar system on the field. The model did not represent size, shape, or orbit but did show distance.

BFG Global Read Aloud Book Culminating Project: Dream Jars!

Students today in Mrs. Burns ELA class who have recently  finished our Global Read Aloud of the book BFG (Big Friendly Giant ) by Ronald Dahl got to present their Dream Jars.  Students painted their Dream Jar, wrote a dream to put inside using lots of BFG's special words so they could write their dream from the Point of View of the Giant. They even built me a bookcase in the back of our room to showcase all these wonderful jars. Today they did a Gallery Walk of all the Dream Jars and got to read all these amazing dreams. Great job! ( A BIG thank you to Mrs. York for lending us all the paint and brushes :)
