Friday, April 17

This week we went to the computer lab. We worked on our photo stories. We went Monday, Tuesday, and some people went Wednesday and Thursday! Monday when we came in we did a Vocab review sheet. Tuesday we did a practice for the NJ ASK testing. Wednesday, we went back to the computer lab for the people who didn’t finish. Thursday, we went to the computer lab for the last time and listened to some Photo Story projects. On Friday, we went to the book fair! Then we went to Vocab Bingo! Today was our last day of school before Spring Break!!!
This week was very exciting. We learned how to do Photo Story and turned our fairy tales into media files. The requirements were 10 images and our fairy tales had to be re-written in modern times from a different point of view. We also learned that a book we read at the beginning of the year (Chasing Vermeer)is being turned into a movie by Brad Pitt! Today we are going to the book fair and playing vocabulary bingo against Mrs. S's class. We also did some NJASK practice and review. We had to tell what it would be like to live in your favorite book, short story, or television show for one day.
In science we celebrated Earth Day by creating a mural of hands on our team wall, "The Future of Our Earth is in Our Hands." video

Fairy Tale Frenzy

This week in Mrs. Hartman's class, we did a lot. On Monday, we read several versions of Rumpelstiltskin. After that, we started to re-wright our fairy tales. On Tuesday, we wrapped up Rumpelstiltskin, and continued our fairy tales. This Wednesday, we read Rumpelstiltskin, but different character's points of view. And once again, we continued our fairy tales.
On Thursday, we took a vocab quiz, did a worksheet, and started to finish the fairy tales. On Friday, we took a spelling quiz, checked the work sheet we completed Thursday, and finished our fair tales. After a fairy tale frenzy, we'll go home and relax on the weekend!
