Fifth Grade Reading Projects

The students had to present a book report on either a fantasy, myth, or folktale book.  The students were given several choices for projects.  Some of those including dressing up as the character, making a book cover, or creating puppets!  The fifth graders did a great job!

PDS Veteran's Day Ceremony

Caroline wrote a letter to Mr. Turner inviting him to come to our Veteran's Day Celebration.

Mr. George Turner, WWII Veteran, presented Caroline with a jar of sand from the Normandy Beach Invasion.

Since Mr. Turner was in the Normandy Invasion, this was a special gift for Caroline!

James and the Giant Peach

After reading James and the Giant Peach, fifth graders made papier mache peaches.  We painted them, added seagulls, and hung them in the classroom!
