We have started our study of Edgar Allan Poe! Students are creating a Playbill about Poe and a story they become "the expert" on. Then they are creating movie posters and a book trailer for that story. SO exciting! Here is what has been done so far!

We have been studying poetry the last few's been really fun!

A classroom favorite has always been "The Highwayman" and "The Cremation of Sam McGee". I was lucky enough to find this video of the latter on youtube:

Students have also begun their eportfolios. It is great to see my students SO excited about their page and writing! So far so good!
