Dear Parents,

Tomorrow is the day we present our Asia projects! I am really looking foreword to seeing all of them! I told the students, they can ask for assistance, but it is their responsibility to complete the project, and make sure that it gets to school by Thursday. We present between 1:00-2:30.

Thanks for all you do!

Miss Elise

Dear Parents,

We have been working hard on our Asian projects for International Festival, but with the limited computers in our classroom, students need to complete their projects at home. Each student now has their specific topic, linked to Asia.

What is required:

-Some type of link to Asian history (students can pick an individual country if Asia is to overwhelming)

Ex. If the topic is Asian fashion they can just focus on fashion in China.

– Facts or ideas that interest the student- what do they want to learn about their topic? What are some fun facts they could teach the class?

– Props are optional- if they want to bring artifacts, or make models of what they are studying.

Ex. Some students are cooking, they will bring the food item to share.

– A way to display the project- a poster board, a series of pictures, a costume

Please let me know if you have any questions about your child’s project. We present December 18th!

Thanks,

Miss Elise

Dear Parents,

The students have been preparing their projects for International Festival! Our  broad topic is Asia, but every student has picked an individual topic. We will be presenting our projects on December 18th from 1:00-2:00. The students have been given time to work on this during class, but working outside of class is encouraged to get everything they want to get done. I also explained if they wanted to bring precious artifacts, to ask permission, and bring it only on the day of the presentation.

Thanks,

Miss Elise
