Happy Friday!

Great American Night was a wonderful success!
The students had a great time sharing their hard work, knowledge, and becoming their Great American for an hour. Their organization and successful projects show how they have grown as learners and students this year. I want to thank all of our parents for your guidance at home with presentation boards and costumes. We could not have made this such a big success without your help. Your children are amazing!

Enjoy the Long Weekend!

Hard at work!
Happy Friday!

     It's Great American chaos in our room...What fun we are having!
     Students are working at their own pace on different parts of their projects. Portraits of Great Americans are being drawn by all, presentation boards are starting to arrive, and final touches on essays are being worked on. They are working so hard. As I watch and guide, I have really noticed how the students have grown over the school year. They have become great independent workers, problem solver,s and helpers to classmates through this project. I am so proud of them.

     We can't wait for Great American Night to share with you all of this hard work. Remember, Great American Night is next Thursday, May 26, 6:00-7:00pm.

Enjoy your weekend!

     We are going to repeat a few sample Great American project boards (below) as some students wanted to be able to click on the blog for references while designing their project.
     The week flew by with hard working students reading, writing, and creating their Great American project pieces. Many students are completing the pieces for their presentation boards and some have started typing their essays which will accompany their boards. The excitement is growing!
     At this time at home, your child should be designing the presentation board backgrounds and putting together their costumes. I have asked the kids to not glue down any written pieces they have completed yet. There will be more next week and I want them to be able to lay out their work to save them from frustration.
     Should you have any questions regarding the Great American projects, please do not hesitate to contact me. A reminder that all written pieces will be completed at school. The designing of the board can be enjoyed at home with family.
Great American Night is Thurs. May 26.
      Have a great weekend!
