Famous Person Video Time
This is a big week for our famous person project! We will be filming on Tuesday. The students are super excited to perform their skits. I have had some questions about what time we will be filming. It will probably take us most of the morning, it is quite a process. Please do not come. We will show the video a few times during history night. The kids want it to be a surprise.
Please make sure they come to school in costume and bring a uniform to change into if your child wants to change after filming.
Famous Person Scrapbooks
Students have been doing an awesome job researching, learning and writing about their famous person. They have been tasked with some high levels of thinking for second graders. For example, while researching they took notes in different categories on their "Scribble Notes" packet. They then had to write on different pages of their "Scrapbook" using those notes, but pulling from multiple categories. It has been fun to watch them sort their facts and try to decide where information best fits. We have some good thinkers in this group. They still have a lot of research to do. They have learned that after you begin writing, you often come up with new questions you hadn't thought of before. The "Scrapbooks" will be on display during History Night.
