Some more Voicethread Novel Shares.

Read and Tell

We have read so many great books as a class, and you have read over 2,000 pages on your own! Let's take this opportunity to highlight one or two of the books that you would give 5 stars!

Include the book title and why you recommend it. Hopefully other students will post their favorites as well!

Think...really think.

To help keep the pollen off your brain we are going to answer a few philosophical questions. You discussed philosophy in Current Events on Tuesday. Remember that we are not looking for right or wrong answers...just thoughtful answers. Have fun!

1. Does a tree make a sound if it falls in the forest with no one around? Explain your reasoning.

Must be May!

It must be May. The students are beginning to get are the teachers! Another sign is the amount of projects looming (all with the best of intentions and a desire to do one more great thing before the school year ends). We just finished the PowerPoint's on our State Brochures. Next we are collaborating with another school on a creative writing assignment! Two more projects after that...all in good time. Hope to post more work soon.
