Welcome to Mr. Allen's Classroom Website!

The class had a great time last week doing the puppet shows! We made videos of all the performances - they were a blast! Students were encouraged to make a journal of their water-conserving activities for the week and we shared and discussed the journals on Friday.
Next week we start our unit on Creek Indians and the role of Creeks (as well as other groups like the Cherokee and the Timucua) in Georgia's past. Our big activity for the coming weeks is to construct a to-scale housing structure similar to the homes used by Creek Indians in this area. To help prepare for this project, please help your child gather small twigs and sticks to use in the housing structures.

Upcoming Events:

  • September 20 - Picture Day
  • September 23 - Ice Cream Party
  • September 27 - Fund Raiser Money Due
