Dear Students and Parents,
For the month of November I would like the students to read a fantasy book and choose one of the following projects to do. The students will be presenting in class February 26th to the 28th.
1. Imagine that you are the author of the book you just read. Suddenly the book becomes a best seller. Write a letter to a movie producer trying to get that person interested in making your book into a movie. Explain why the story, characters, conflicts, etc., would make a good film. Suggest a filming location and the actors to play the various roles. YOU MAY ONLY USE BOOKS WHICH HAVE NOT ALREADY BEEN MADE ONTO MOVIES.
2. Be a TV or radio reporter, and give a report of a scene from the book as if it is happening LIVE. You will need to write up your presentation to turn in to Miss Ptacek.
3. Make a newspaper about your book, with all a newspaper’s parts- comics, ads, weather, letter to the editor, etc.
We are continuing to use Spelling City for our spelling tests each Friday. You can find the various lists using the web address https://www.spellingcity.com/a925p159/. Students’ lists tend to vary from week to week so if you are ever wondering what list your student is on please don’t hesitate to ask.
