Check out our class building our stamina for reading. The students have been building the reading stamina during reading workshop blocks this past week. We also have had the chance to begin filling out book boxes with "just right" books. The students were responsible for choosing books based on genre. Make sure to ask the students about the word "genre"! The task was challenging BUT they were very proud of themselves at the end. ( I was, too!)
First writing assignment, a bio-poem. The students brainstormed things they need, love and want! They had a good time with this assignment. I know they can't wait to share them.
Also, we have begun our class novel "Windcatcher", by Avi. It is very adventurous! The students never want me to stop reading it!
