Officially 5th grade Published Authors!

Reading

Students have finished the book Bridge to Terabithia with much enjoyment. We have identified figurative language, foreshadowing and mood within the novel. The students were deeply engaged in this heart wrenching and magical novel. Today, we illustrated our own magical lands and acted out scenes from the novel.
