Students will be creating several different Easter/Spring projects before they go on Spring Break. To add to their project the students will also be writing stories that contain a main character chick or bunny that has to solve a problem while on an adventure.
The following our the videos I made for the classes to watch prior to creating the projects. This is to help the students “begin with the end in mind”, meaning they can see all the steps and then create the project with one-on-one assistance and whole group instruction. After creating their grade level project the students will being their writing.
