The Grade 5s are now nearly finished their Business Projects. Early next week they will present their projects to me and on Friday I have booked the MPR and each group will have a place where they will be selling the product(s) their business came up with. Two groups will have food and drinks available (they made a Cafe business), one group will be selling decorated school supplies, and the final group made an NPO and will be accepting donations for an animal shelter. 


Dear Parents
I would like to inform you that tomorrow we will have the open house. That is why there is no Saturday school.
Have a nice holiday.

Creating your skit

Step 2: Decide what characters you will need in each scene.

Step 3: Decide how many locations you will need for the scenes overall. Where will these scenes take place?

Step 4: Decide on the key dialogue points needed in each scene. What needs to be said for the scene to make sense?
