New author study with Arthur Howard. Working in the E/everybody “neighborhood” and finding author last names on “street” shelves. Week 2 of Rhyme Time!
Final week of Mac Barnett love! Two different lessons (as some kids didn’t see his presentation). Flipgrid videos are up and password secure!
TRAILS survey, a 15 question assessment, which all 4th graders in my district do in the first part of the year. Good news: a vast majority know how to take notes and paraphrase. Bad news: about half cannot find a book on the shelf given the author’s name. Yet another reason to go Dewey-free?
AND…new displays! To aid students in finding the books they want most: the Sasquatch nominees and Halloween/scary books. I love using a READBOX all year long for seasonal books. The window to the main hall is an added display bonus, too!
