Community Connections

Creating Community Connections with Commercials

Our videos have been becoming so popular, that we've been getting requests from teachers and administrators.  This one is promoting our upcoming student-led conferences.  The theme is "Binder Boogie," and they really enjoyed making this one!  When making commercials, students use teamwork, writing, reading, creativity, and public speaking skills.  Sharing the commercials helps us connect with our community!  We love to invite guest to our school to see the amazing things we are doing!

Please join us for our Binder Boogie and Groovy Book Fair on March 23, 2016!

Here are a few more commercials my 5th grade class has created this year...
