In an effort to promote literacy and open communication between JFK and the elementary schools, students in Ms. Green's JFK class recently visited Central Boulevard with 8 seventh graders to present a lesson on Round (dynamic) and Flat (static) characters for the fifth grade students in Mrs. Ostrom's class. Students prepared balloon and plate characters based on historical fiction books they read for their independent reading project in English, CBS students prepared summaries of characters from their independent reading books in Language Arts. As a culminating activity, the seventh graders prepared a brief PowerPoint presentation on characterization that they presented to CBS students on February 4. It was a terrific project for all!
