Student Spotlights: Comic Strip Project 

Ms. Munday's class had the opportunity to meet and learn about comics from the creator of the Cat-Files webcomics! The students came up with their own storyline and learned how to color in the comics. One fifth-grade student even volunteered to do a special half-hour session teaching students who had not been present for the guest speaker how to create and color in their own digital cartoons. Take a look at some of their work!
