students dressed in character

Mrs. Usry’s 5th grade students from Schley County Elementary School enjoyed showing their character to Stay Drug Free. Students dressed up as their favorite characters to emphasize the importance of a drug free America. While students enjoyed being in character, they worked hard on summarizing featured texts and using descriptive details to retell a story. Students created a vocabulary bridge to demonstrate their understanding of key words from the text and conducted additional research to gather information on the writing topic.
