Fiction Reading Project Ideas

Here are some ideas we talked about in class today. Please have your child bring in the materials they will need for the project they want to do. This is an in class project, so please don't have them work on it at home. :)

Reading Project

Happy Friday!
 
The students have worked very hard the last 5 weeks or so.  We have learned many elements of fiction:  conflict, resolution, setting, plot, character traits and theme.  To finish this unit, we will complete a book project in class.  They will get to decide on how they want to present one of their favorite books.  I am asking you to talk with your child about how he/she wants to present their project and then send in materials for them to use.  They will have access to construction paper and their regular supplies in class.  If they want to make a mobile, shoebox diorama or something creative, they will need to bring that from home.  They will also learn how to make a triorama in class, as well as a foldable to present the information.
 
Here is a presentation of ideas they could choose to do.
 
Please remember, this is an in class project. They will not need to work on this at home.
 
Have a wonderful weekend!

I am in need of TWO Room Parents this year. The PTO is requesting each class (Virtual and F2F) have TWO room parents.  Room Parent duties will help with communication between the teacher and class parents. They will help organize class parties, teachers gifts, etc. While parents are not allowed on campus at this time, restrictions may be lifted throughout the year, and room parents will need to be in place if that occurs.  If you are interested, please send your name, email and phone number to me and I will forward to Samantha Herington our PTO Vice President. Thank you!!

 

Raffle Tickets are now available on the PTO website!!
