Show and Tell Link up

          Thank you to  Stephanie from Forever in Fifth Grade for setting up a Show and Tell link up this month!
 Hop on over to her blog!
     We have been working on events leading up to the American Revolution in my 5th grade class. 

      We had read the book You Can't Make Them Behave, King George  

by Jean Fritz. Then the students worked on character traits using this worksheet.

    A discussion of who were Loyalists and Patriots was another topic of discussion.

      Enjoy your week and the end of the school year!

13 Colonies Review

              I try to do different things to review with my students before a test.
We are finishing up the chapter on the 13 Colonies. Large chart paper was perfect for the students  to write on. 

        Each student had an opportunity  to write information on the large sheets for each of the New England, Middle, and Southern Colonies. They had to read all the prior entries and not repeat information already written. The students could also edit incorrect information that others had written.
