April 18 Meeting

Today's meeting kicked off with Dr. Hundley reading a section of Jacqueline Woodson's Brown Girl Dreaming, where the author explains the origins of her name. Students then had a chance to write stories about where their names came from. We learned a lot of interesting tidbits about the students and their families.

Next, students proofread and wrote final copies of their "Where I'm From" poems. These poems will be compiled into a book that students will receive at our final meeting of the year. After their final copies were written, we headed outside for students to have a snack and burn off some energy.

Micrography portraits were our last activity of the day. Students traced their photos onto tracing paper. They then transferred the image to a sheet of white paper. Next, students wrote words to describe themselves on the outlines of their photos. Finally, they went over the words in marker. They turned out beautifully!

  2. When I was in school, we also held such events and it was very cool. Now I work as a private tutor and write articles for the site customessaymeister . I communicate with children a lot and I can say that such activities as described in the article are very popular with students.
