“The Scarebird”

On Friday, October 30, the fifth graders culminated a lesson in reading by making their own scarecrows.  The students read the story “The Scarebird” by Sid Fleischman, discussing the key ideas, vocabulary, and theme of the story.  In addition to creating their own scarecrows, the students wrote a description of their scarecrow using specific details to help the reader find the matching “scarebird”.   When you come to your parent conference, be sure to stop and look at the creative scarecrows made by the fifth graders!
