We have a Veteran's Day assembly at 9:30 on Nov. 8. You are all invited to attend. The posters that students in the school made about veterans and relatives in the service are on display in the hall by the office. They look great.
The second round of book project presentations start tomorrow. Now that we've done book projects once before, I expect the students will be better prepared this time. We will start with volunteers, then go to application level projects, then analysis, evaluation, and synthesis.
Presentations of the last big reading projects for the trimester start on Nov. 18. The vets present first. Students will use a Power Point presentation to give an oral book report comparing an independent reading book with one of their genre reading books. They can choose to compare plot and setting OR they can choose to compare character and theme. There are templates of both kinds of Power Points in the Kragen classroom folder at school. The templates are also both posted in the Elementary Materials page on this site, along with the rubric for the Power Point presentation.
