2nd, 4th, and 5th grades Showcase
The showcases will be on Friday 13th during the GT class. We started a bit later this year due to the new testing procedures, but the projects will be finished by next week. We will work on presentations when we return in January so everyone needs to bring in a trifold display board with their student's name on the back.
2nd grade: I'm super proud of these little ones...they have done a great job and are so enthusiastic that I have agreed to let them do a 3rd grade project next semester!! CURIOSITA!! They are so excited!!
4th grade: Be mindful over the holidays that you will need to bring in 10 artifacts of your culture. These are not necessarily things FROM the place but they need to have a relationship to your culture studied. YES...it can be food! :) That was a big hit last year! You all have some great ideas already!
5th grade: Don't forget that your project requires a visual piece. We have discussed this in class at length! Some examples for parents: Lego tower built of the Eiffel tower to represent a trip to Paris, a big stuffed Kangaroo to represent a trip to Australia, or a 3D puzzle of the Empire State Building to represent a trip to New York. This piece is a large visual...not a coin, or small token from a trip. It will be a conversation piece in your display! The places they have chosen are great topics and I think they are going to really enjoy the next project! WE are going to COLLEGE!!
We will use the Library for our Presentations in January:
2nd Grade: 9:35 - 10:05
4th Grade: 2:45 - 3:15
5th Grade: 1:45 - 2:15
NOTE: the 3rd grade project is GOING GREAT!!! Utopia is being created. We will be building Utopia when we return so please send in a foam board (poster size) in January when we return. We will design our cities on these boards...be thinking of what you would like to use to construct! Ex: boxes, legos, clay, etc??? Sky is the limit...and it is my first year to do this! :) This group is so creative!! Ask them about their project so far...they have established a location, written the charter and government! Interesting to watch them develop this Utopia!! I am excited to see them through to the end!! Could not have asked for a better bunch to do this with!!
I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year! Enjoy the break with your little ones!!
