• Ten fifth graders form two teams that help broadcast the news show to the whole school each morning. They take turns being an anchor, camera operator, script person, and sound person. Each day they make important announcements and celebrate good things happening at school and in our community. There are guest appearances from staff members and students, and the favorite guest is the attendance fairy who comes to announce which classes had the best attendance at the end of every week. We promote vocabulary development with Terminology Thursday, share pics of great things happenings in our classrooms with Twitter Tuesday, and practice critical thinking skills with I Wonder Wednesday activities.
