Sixth Graders Create Digital Books of Their School Year
For the fifth consecutive year, each sixth grade student at The Montgomery Academy was involved in building a one-of-a-kind digital book of their school year. In order to accomplish this project, students and teachers took pictures throughout the year of events such as field trips, class parties, project presentations, and daily activities. Their pictures were downloaded on school computers and each student put their book together as the year progressed. In April, the books were ordered, and everyone anxiously awaited their arrival at school. Each student received a history grade (history of the sixth grade) on their book based on several categories including proper grammar, well-formed sentences, spelling, and following instructions. Carole Quallio, sixth grade social studies teacher, said "I am excited about this project and think that both the building of the books and the books themselves have been a fun adventure for us all!"
