After working long and hard for weeks on end, the finished product of our biography projects came out better than I ever could have imagined and I couldn't be more proud of my Super Stars.
Each student chose a leader in history who has impacted society in one way or another. They had to use a book and an article to research their life, create a time line, and write a short essay about the importance of their leadership to the world we live in. Each student got to present their Leader to the class and teach us everything they learned about them, followed by a short question and answer session. Everyone did an AMAZING job. What a great way to end the quarter. :)
This quarter my class and I are reading "The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane," by Kate DiCamillo. We have been focusing a lot on asking thoughtful questions, and discussing possible solutions as a whole class.

2. How come... Pelligrina said she was "disappointed in Edward?"
3. Why... would someone throw Edward in the garbage?
Each chapter has been leaving us with a "cliff hanger" and we have been making lots of predictions about where we think our character will end up next.

We can't wait to keep reading this week to see what happens to Edward after he's thrown in the trash.
