Assignments Due


Wednesday: Start working on your interest posters for your lesson. Think about how your group is going to grab the interest of about 18 K/1 students. Think colorful, bright pictures that will grab their interest. You will have today and Friday to work on your posters.

Friday: Garden (we need fresh air) and then inside to continue working on our posters! I will be out of class on 9/29 so if you need some additional time, that would be a good time to finish your work on any missing part of this assignment.
