5th & 6th Grade


From Mr. Rippe, February 16, 2017

The students are having lots of fun with slides in the 5th and 6th grade classroom. Not the play-ground equipment, but rather slideshow presentations. They have been looking up saints, colo-nies, history, crystals, and rocks in their books and online, then forming a slideshow presentation on what they have learned. They love looking up the information for themselves, finding pic-tures, and presenting it to their classmates. One day they even wanted to give up recess so they could keep going. It is great to see them so engaged and eager to learn. Each student is able to add something to the lesson, make it their own, and make it fun. Some of them have been learn-ing how to make their slides with special effects, and many of them adding their own humor to the presentation as well. Sometimes it’s good to let things slide!
