Who said vocabulary review had to be boring?! This week, 5th grade writers learned how to use Google Drawing to create Word Clouds, while also reviewing their Spelling Words in preparation for their Unit Test. Students used these Word Clouds as a form of self-assessment. They changed color, size and fonts to differentiate between the words they knew and the words they still needed to master. I love how they embraced their creativity and made this project their own! Each student took a unique approach, and they turned out fabulous! Good work writers.

Survival tip for Shelter
The first night find a spot rock face and dig in to make a shelter. You could use a spot where there is coal. Dig in so you have plenty of space to move around. Then use your cobble to make a L-shaped rock so you can hide around corner if a skeleton passes by your window. With the coal and sticks make torches with the stick on the bottom and the coal on top. The torches are so mobs don’t spawn in your home. You are eventually going to run out of inventory space so make space by making a chest.
COYOTES INVADE CHICAGO!
Dangers of coyotes
by: Jason German
News reports state that a coyote attacked a dog three times in one week! And the dogs owners say that it cost 200 dollars or more, each time they go to the vet. I hope that my dog doesn’t get attacked by the coyotes. Especially puppies because they are small and can get really injured or even killed. Another reason is that some people can’t afford that money. That is why it is a big worry for people.
Causes of Coyotes By: Elizabeth
You should never leave your dog’s food outside. Also don’t leave your dogs water your dogs water. The coyotes might attack your dog if you leave it outside. That is why you don’t leave your dogs food outside and need to leave your dog inside all the time. And your dog.outside. That causes coyotes to come to your house and eat your dogs food and drink
Coyotes by: Osvaldo
There are about 5,000 coyotes in Chicago. The aurora makes a good habitat for the coyotes. I hope we find a way to make them leave. People need to put 6 foot fences to keep coyotes away. This way coyotes won’t get in your yard. Fire department found a coyote on Lake Michigan ice. A coyote waits for cars to pass to raise a litter of pups at the top of the parking deck.
All about coyotes by: Angela
Some coyotes run loose. Did you know that boy coyotes make better parents than other human fathers. They help take care of baby coyotes. When one of them dies, they all go their their own separate ways. Some coyotes are really devilish.
