5th Grade Portfolio Due Date

The 5th grade students were assigned a portfolio project the second week of school.  We built the portfolio type envelopes together during class.  The assignment is to design the front and back cover for the portfolio envelopes.  A folder with the design instructions are kept inside their portfolios.  The kids are given portfolio work days, they can work on their portfolios after completing assignments, and they can take them home as long as they are back every Art class.
