Wow!  The research papers for the Inquiry Quests are amazing! It's clear that kids worked really hard on their research and on communicating their new knowledge. This week and next we will be working on the movie project as access to technology permits. Kids can use Windows Movie Maker (on school computers), iMovie (on school ipads), or whatever movie making software they are comfortable with. They have been given a storyboard template with movie requirements. They should be using the language, research and resources that they have already gathered for their paper. It is important that kids use class time efficiently or they will find themselves up against the deadline with a lot of time consuming work to do. Procrastination is the enemy!

Along with work time for the movies, we will be sprinkling in mini-lessons for grammar, non-fiction and figurative language as a review for the upcoming PARCC tests. 

Tuesday - Friday: work days on the movie project.
