4th Grade Farewell 2012

Continuing a tradition I started several years ago, I asked 4th grade students to use the school FlipCams and record a "farewell" message to Hillside School and their teachers. This video was shown at their end-of-year 4th grade assembly, where teachers and some parents gather. They were asked to say a short goodbye, using such sentence starters as "I will always remember when..." or "Thank you, _____ for...." or "In 4th grade I learned..." They could also just speak from their own heart.

The finished video is available on the Mt. Laurel Family Portal (password protected)!

Third Grade Famous American Project - Hillside Hall of Fame

Congratulations to our third grade winners of our "Hillside Hall of Fame" project!  Each third grader researched a Famous American of their choice, and created a cover letter and resume as if that person was applying for a job - a spot in the "Hillside Hall of Fame!"

Classes voted on the top 3 Americans they believed should be in the "Hillside Hall of Fame," and the winning projects are presented on the voicethread website.

Project can be viewed below or you can view it larger here.
