Grades 2&3 - Calling Caldecott
The Caldecott Medal will be announced Monday morning at the ALA Mid-Winter Conference. View this video to learn about the history of the Caldecott Medal and see some of the author's processes for creating an award winning book.
We will share as many of the 2016 Caldecott winner and nominee books as we have on hand as our whole group read a loud this week. Students will have the opportunity to study different books through the decades and see if their opinions agree/disagree with those of previous Caldecott committees.
Grades 4&5 - 7 Habits of Happy Kids - Habit 2
This week we will complete our journal entries on Habit 1 - Be Proactive and begin our study of Habit 2 - Begin with the End in Mind. We will share a short story from the book and do some additional journal writing on Habit 2. Remember - Mrs. Kent is collecting your writings and will hand them back to you at the end of our study to put in your data notebooks for upcoming conferences.
