Ok, here's an antidote for the bitter Scrooge. Marta's 4th graders recently went to the Wyckoff House in East Flatbush for part of their Colonial NY unit. To prepare for the trip we watched video of Sam's 2003 visit along with the slide show they made for the learning fair. They also made an incredible model, with Mr. Stern's guidance, that now is part of The Wyckoff House's permanent collection. Here is the slide show which featured a writing unit that stressed varied opening paragraphs. Here's a portion of Sam's video. Marta always teaches the concentrated ELL group and does a great job.
