Our week started off with much excitement as the students found out who their "Great Americans" would be. We prepared for note taking by putting together a folder to hold our sticky notes and dot jot pages. The students spent most of this week reading their biography books and noting character traits based on the actions and words of their Great American.
By the end of the week, some students were starting to take their sticky notes and turn them into notes. We also looked at an example of how the first paragraph of their essay will look as well as what their speech will look and sound like for Great American Night. By Friday, students were also making a tagxedo for their presentation boards. This is an art piece using shapes and words describing their Great American to create an image using technology.

By Friday afternoon, we were ready for a break. We got together with our 8th grade Buddies and walked over to YES to help weed and clean the district vegetable garden. Enjoy the sunny weekend!
