We started the day in Tech Center where students learned how to paste pictures from Google Images into their PowerPoint. They continued to work on their biographical presentation about a person who “made a difference.”
Returning to the room, we worked in our journals. Since our theme in Treasures is currently “Powerful Words”, I asked the students to make a list of 30 words that they thought were powerful. I made a couple of them into Wordles. The students liked this so much that they will be doing the same with it over the next week during our Independent Work Time.
Today was not only the election for our nation’s president, but it was the election for Student Body President as well. Only fifth graders can hold this job, but fourth graders are the “swing states” in this election.
In other news, our PTA Thanksgiving Food Drive is starting. Please remember to send canned good and other non-perishable food items to school with your child. Room 19 is usually one of the top contributors each year, and I would like to see us win this year.
