Earth Day Presentatons

Well I was out on Friday and I came in on this rainy Monday morning with a bad class report :(  Fortunately, the day turned around.  It wasn't all my kids, but its just those couple of bad comments that can ruin your mood.  Good thing is I think that was the last time I'll be out this year... 27 days!

Anyway, this afternoon we presented or Earth Day projects.  They turned out great!  Below are an example of two of the posters that some groups made and the script for a play and the lyrics for a song.  I so wish I could post the videos, but I want to protect my kids' privacy.  Use your imagination for the scripts and song!
How cute is the Eeaarrrrttthhh??  She really stretched her voice there!

These two did a great super hero presentation!  They are quite the actors... and quite the handful in the classroom.  this was a good outlet for them and they did a GREAT job!

Like I said last week, I LOVE these projects.  It is SO easy once they get started.  I give them the required information and then the rest is up to them.  They create their scripts and everything.  Sometimes (as you can see above) I have to get them off to a good start, but they take all the creative credit.  There isn't much room for full creativity in schools anymore - this is such an easy way to fit it into the curriculum and did I mention its EASY for the teacher!  I use a password protected vimeo to share the videos with the parents.

In other news, our Flat Stanley wall is growing.  We've added Boston, Ohio, Germany and Mongolia since my post from the White House!  Some of the people are even sending in photo books for the kids to remember their "adventures."  Its great.  The deadline is tomorrow so I am hoping to get the last few in during the next week.

Happy Monday!
