As we wrap up a successful year together, I look back on all of our memories together. It's a bittersweet time today, to say the least. I'm so proud of all my 5th graders and of all the "lollipop moments" we have shared this year. I hope this short video reminds you that every single one of you is a leader in your own way. You may not even realize it yet, but everything you do, and everything you stand for, has an effect on the people around you. Here's to your next "lollipop moment!" Good luck in 6th grade, my leaders!
It's hard to believe it's the last week of school! The 5th graders each created a Google Slideshow to give advice to the 4th graders at Peck and tell them some very crucial information about each of their new teachers. They also described some of the activities and homework for each class. Each 5th grader will be paired up with a 4th grader and email the slideshow to them before school ends, so the 4th grader can better prepare this summer for the new and exciting challenges of 5th grade.
Also, this week, fifth grade representatives from each homeroom will be presenting their Google Slideshow in each of the 4th grade homerooms to share their learnings, organization tips, and answer any questions.
Here is a sample Google Slideshow from Abel Coronel in Room 110.
This quarter, students created short documentary films on their debate topics. They started out by researching and collecting facts/images. Following a week of planning out their movies using a Storyboard, students drafted their scripts, interviewed teachers and parents, and acted out rehearsed scenes.
We used WeVideo on the Chromebooks to edit the videos, add captions, transitions and special effects, like music and backgrounds. Students stayed focused on their claim, audience, and purpose. They reflected weekly on their journey as filmmakers by drawing and writing in their Production Journals. Representatives from each homeroom will be showing their documentaries at Peck's Garden Gala, Wednesday, June 10 from 5-7pm.
