Literature Discussion - Character Traits

  After reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio, students worked in small collaborative groups to create character posters about each of the characters in the story.  When they were finished with their posters, they used the information they gathered to create wordclouds about their group's assigned character.

We then put the wordclouds into a collage using Picassa as a photo editing tool.

Hurricane Isaac Activity

Since weather is a topic 5th grade covers in NC, I decided to take advantage of my new classroom technology on the second day of school, as students jumped right in, tracking and documenting information about Isaac.

Students worked collaboratively in groups to track some of the details of the hurricane.
