Penny Yearbook

Our communication arts project for this week was our penny yearbook. Students have been researching very hard at school as well as at home. With more information about this yearbook here is Fidel (Mrs. Drake's Class), Harson and Sasha (both from my class).

As stated in the video, students have been researching everything from movies, to music, to old family stories to complete this yearbook. Our students have really put a lot of effort into this yearbook thus far and have also learned a great deal along the way.

All of this talk about reliving past family memories started many "campfire" style story telling amongst my students. I have been very proud of how positive our students have been towards this project, and their willingness to step up and really make it their own.

We will continue to work into next week, and I will update everyone on the finish project once we are done.
