Alliteration! Class of 2006 - 7

Here are all the scanned images of your alliteration illustrations. If you completed your alliteration example and it is not posted here, it is because:
  1. your example/picture was too messy to read,
  2. you didn't turn it in,
  3. it didn't make sense, or
  4. it didn't scan correctly.
A big thank you goes out to Rachel L. for donating a scanner to our class! It's awesome for us to be able to post our artwork to our blog. Also, I must add that after I taught Kayla how to scan images to Photoshop, rotate images, and save to the correct file, she did an absolutely wonderful job teaching the rest of the class while I conferenced with students still writing their memoirs. I think about half of my students now know how to use my laptop and scanner correctly because of her!! Thank you Kayla!

Remember, to see the full sized image, just click on the picture!

Endangered Species PowerPoint Presentations

Students researched an endangered species of their choice and created PowerPoint presentations based on what they found out. Students learned how to make a PowerPoint presentation in class and through online tutorials. Their final projects were a collaborative effort with their partner, and were completed with very little teacher input. This was also the students' first experience with doing a work's cited page (bibliography).
