Let's have a little fun. We will be creating a class playlist using Spotify. You will need a Spotify account, a free one should work. Then you must 'follow' the playlist. After you follow the playlist you should be able to drag and drop your song into the playlist. Here is the link: tinyurl.com/TigerPlaylist
Make sure you check out the lyrics so it will be school appropriate. You know I will. ;)

The seventh grade are learning about the culture of the United States. One of the activities they have to complete is to create their own monument to immigrations like the Statue of Liberty. Since many of my students are Hispanic, they wanted to to include their culture into their projects. This allowed for a great discussion on the history of Hispanics in the United States.
Here is an example created with Lego. Students had the option to choose their own medium to use.
The eighth grade are learning about the American Revolution right now. One of the lessons I teach is how Paul Revere created his famous Boston Massacre print. The students had to take what they learned about the Boston Massacre and create a print that reflected a Loyalist point of view.
The students created a sketch of their picture and then recreated it by carving into a styrofoam plate. They then covered the plate with marker and pressed to paper. Some students were really creative and used several different colors on the print.

As we read through the hobbit we are doing some creating. Below are two posters my students made that represented their favorite scene from the first 15% of The Hobbit book.
After Bilbo bests Gollum in a riddle contest (completely through luck and a bit of cheating) we decided to make our own riddles. Here is mine, see if you can guess the correct answer.
It's long, it's short, it's gone. When you are young you want it where it isn't. When you are old you have it where you don't want it.
You never know when it will grow or shrink.Nicole's riddle:
What grows old and loses it's color but comes back new in the next summer?
