   Cover Letter from Mr. Miller

   This portfolio is a collection of the student’s work during
their studies at Gardner Math, Science, and Technology
Magnet School. We hope you will enjoy seeing the following
samples of their work and learning more about them from
the selections they have chosen for you. Each student has
worked hard to design and develop a portfolio all their own
with a personal sense of style.
   We welcome and invite you to take a journey into the
student’s world. Join us for a look at what they have
selected as their best examples of accomplishment.

                              Thank you!

                   are dirt bikes, transformers, and

  Isaiah’s Web Page
      3rd -Technology Project 1 Description

 The students worked very hard to create their own personal web
  site. Students in Third Grade created a web site consisting of
 TWO pages. The first page serves as their homepage with a link
to page two, which is a paragraph the students have written to tell
                  others more about themselves.
  Students also worked to select graphics they wished to leave,
  delete, or add on their web site. Each student also worked on
 selecting the background and layout of their personal web site.
The web site was then linked from their teacher’s web site on the
           Gardner Third Grade Teachers’ Web Site:

           My Movie
     3rd -Technology Project 3 Description

      Mr. Miller took the students pictures each
month during the school year. Those pictures
were used to create a short video of each
child showing how they had grown and
changed during the year.
      Students could add special effects,
transitions, or personal audio to their “movie”.
      Students also created their own musical
soundtrack for use in their video.
