Solar Eclipse Day

We had so much fun today – it was Solar Eclipse Day!

Students watched Flocabulary’s Eclipse video and then wrote a short poem/rap with a partner or partners using three words from Flocabulary’s Lyric Lab. They had to write at least two lines and include three words from the provided list.  After picking a “sick beat” to sing to, they practiced their poem to the music. Several brave masterminds performed for us. See a few of those below. I’m so proud of the teamwork and collaboration!

Day 7 and 8 Passion Projects

At the end of the year, we finished our 2nd Passion Projects. We learned so much from these experts. I posted these earlier in our Bloomz texting site, but I wanted to post them here for parents who aren’t on Bloomz.

Enjoy these “teachers!” I  know I sure did!
