6th Grade Stop Motion Filming!

Weekly ELA News News 9/17 - 9/21

Stop Motion Fun!

We worked hard this week on our Writing / Art / Team building project: our Stop Motion Video!  With only two students left to film, we are so close to having a great production to show you.  I'll work on the editing this weekend and upcoming week.  Look for the completed video to be in next week's Weekly ELA News Blog!!  For a brief teaser, check out the couple pictures below.

DonorsChoose Books have arrived!!

Our class set of A Wrinkle in Time books have arrived!  Thank you DonorsChoose, Carla Nilsen, and Starbucks Oregon for making this unit possible for us.  We'll be starting this novel study just around the corner.  
Look how excited they are!  They almost fought over the books!
I'm so excited to start this project, too.  Let the dark and stormy night begin!
This week students spent some time exploring my library and reading books of their own choice while we worked on our Stop Motion projects.  Next week we'll continue to explore our Literacy Cafe (Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, Expanding Vocabulary), begin a spelling practice program, explore the MRA school library, and dive into our novel study.  We stay pretty busy in 6th grade, but it sure is fun.
