Slicing with the Two Writing Teachers community is a pleasure every week. Happy June to Stacey, Tara, Dana, Betsy, Beth, Anna and slicers!
It is the final week of school, our parent 'mini Expo' happened Monday morning for a few hours when parents, siblings and little buddies visited to see students' work and to see the trip board, a tradition that each classroom does, and leaves up for the summer visitors. Some of you asked how we did this, so thought I'd post some of the pictures.
If you want to do a bulletin board that will end up a scrapbook, here is the way we do it. There are additional items on the board that may be added, but there are twenty plus 12 x 12 pages that are laminated, and when the board is taken down in the fall, it will be made into a bound book for the class to keep. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Five students were in charge of the board, but everyone in the class created pages for each day. All I did was supply the paper needed.

can see the second one.

photos, & one painting.

|You can't read this very well, but it was a favorite memory. We sat in the|
rain for a couple of hours on the bay. It wasn't too cold & then we built a fire,
& it was just awesome.
|The sunset swing was a 3 seat swing that swung out|
over the bay. We were cranked up very high, scary, &
then released-wonderful experience!

fire & shared one favorite memory of the trip. By the time all finished, the
fire was almost out, like our trip!
