Today, Lizzie chose to watch a Pixar movie with all the Pixar “shorts” in it.  Consequently, I got a refresher on many of my favorites throughout the years.  A classic that always makes me think about teaching is “For the Birds.”  Check it out below!

What messages do you get from this film?  🙂

By the way, congratulations on completing the DWA yesterday!  Keep up all your efforts on those summative assessment homework projects–I’d love it if you left a comment telling me about your experience, including where you interviewed and what your final thoughts about our Who We Are unit are!!


*Click here for a folder with all the homework projects! The fifth grade teachers always add new ones to this folder. Remember to reflect daily, work neatly, and follow all instructions (and that you can always blog your project, but you must submit it by the due date with a tag of “homework”).
*Read for 20 minutes every day and enter into!
*Study Spelling at home every day ( rocks!), and vocab!
*Missing Work!

  1. The video ( For The Birds ) makes me think about gossiping. It also made me think about being who you are the one big blue bird did not care what the little birds where saying at first. By the way I interviewed some body that works at Best Friends was fun I am excitedfor exabishion! The who we are unit was interesting I liked it!
    Thanks for showing the video!
    Love, Jordan

    • Ooo, I hadn’t thought about gossiping specifically–love that perspective! I’m glad you’re excited for Exhibition, and that you enjoyed the Who We Are unit! Thanks for your comment, Jordan! 🙂
