Threshold Thursday! (Day 19)

     Today feels just like Friday because......we have a trip to the Georgia Aquarium tomorrow!  Although it will be a day full of learning, it will still be a fun and exciting day! I can't wait!

     Since students were all excited and could barely concentrate for their morning work, I am very glad that they had Music and P.E. this morning.  That way, they were able to get all of their "wiggles and squirms" out before they had to come back to class and focus.  For spelling, they took their final quiz over this weeks words.  Most of the students did very well but there always seems to be that handful of students who forgot to study.  Next time, I will try to do an end of the day activity that reminds them to study for their spelling tests.  Maybe like a spelling word search or BINGO?  :/ 
     I was very excited for our Social Studies lesson today.  All of the students have been working very hard to create their presentations on the 13th, 14th, 15th, and 19th Amendments.  Many of the groups made raps about them and performed them in front of the class.  It was a great learning experience for all of the students and they seemed to have a lot of fun.  They love making projects and I think this project is one they will remember.  They had some very catchy tunes that will definitely stick in their heads when it comes down to testing time!  I am still humming the tune to some of them right now!
