Can you believe it? This will be our LAST full week of classes for the school year.
This week we will be sharing our favorite summer stories, reviewing/learning about genres, making sure we can get into the Scholastic Summer Reading website and learning about fun summer reading activities.
Shared Reading: Charlie Crook's Favorite Book by Julia Donaldson or alternate selection
Brain Pop segment on genre (grades 4 & 5)
Brain Pop Jr segment on choosing a book (grades 2 & 3)
Whole group mini-lesson on genre.
Activity: Students will be asked to collect data points on at least 4 of their fellow students (all students at one table for most classes) and classify according to genre. Mrs. Kent will compile and summarize data by grade level and post it here next week.
Choice of Activity: Students will make a poster to advertise their favorite book OR Charlie Crook activity sheet.
