Mrs. Porters Class Presents...."MAGELLAN"

"Nerm's" little 5th grade class presented a play to show us what they've learned about explorers this term.  What a fantastic way to teach history!  They had a great time and did an awesome job.  I didn't realize Tanner was such the actor!  He had enthusiasm, pizazz, and died on stage like a pro!  And I can't tell you how much we learned about Magellan that we'd never known before.  (Whoopy ti yi yo - strong brave Magellan.  You'll find the East Indies you just don't know where!  It was a catchy tune!!!!!)  Hats off to Mrs. Porter and her 5th grade class!  Despite what we heard over the summer from friends and neighbors (we were told she was way hard and both of us would CRY every day!....Sheeeesh people!  Scare us both to death for no reason....and you couldn't be further from the truth!  She IS tough, but I've never seen a teacher so dedicated, sympathetic, and devoted to her kids), Mrs. Porter is incredible and has been absolutely the best teacher Tanner has had in a very long time!!!  I wonder what it would take to move her up to sixth grade next year???!!!  And we can't wait to see what they present to us next term!!!
