5th grade German born Ethiopian student shared how she learned English a few years ago. She has very insightful reflections that would make a great NPR story or book chapter.
Inspired by @stroudlibrary and other guests on March TLNewsNIght, 5th graders start book review video project toay: "Have You Read this?"
Kids Learn about Eloise Greenfield for Poetry month and listen to some of her poems from "Hip Hop Speaks to Children"
It's been fantastic to see how excited the kids have gotten over making rainbow loom bracelets for the Banding Together Project initiated by Shannon Miller. #Unbelievable
Career day was awesome! The bomb squad and good citizen dog were the highlights!
I was surprised to find out that my very "serious" 5th grader is writing fan fiction romance. She is loving the peer collaboration on the Ms Literati writing website for girls.
It's all in my head! Yep, it's all in my head! I write the most insightful and thought provoking blog posts in my head. I do it in the car, I do it in the shower and I do it on a walk. My thoughts never make it from my head to a blog post!! If we do not share our thoughts, it's possible that our peers might think we don't have any thoughts! I have finally come up with a solution to my problem. Instead of writing blog posts, I will just write headlines and people can simply imagine what the blog post might have said. Or, maybe if I write the headline, I can go back later and write the post, but I doubt it. This is because I don't think I can capture the depth and complexity of my thoughts once they are gone. My thoughts flee and I don't have a way of catching them fast enough but I won't give up trying!
