LA Update!

Wow! It’s been forever! It was so good to see all of the smiling faces today. 🙂

Quick update on where we are headed this week in LA. We will be focusing on nonfiction texts for the next few weeks. Our focus for this week and part of next week is text features. We will explore text features and their effects on the text throughout the week and end with a text features quiz middle of next week. We have several activities planned including a text features collage and “fixing” a text with no features.

A book list was sent home with students today to begin picking a historical fiction book for the upcoming book project. More details about the project to come, but picking a book is maybe the most important step. I want this book to be a book of high interest for each student and a book that is on his/her appropriate level. Age and grade level recommendations along with a brief description of each book can be found on the lists. Please let me know if you have further questions about any of the choices.

I’m looking forward to a wonderful third quarter!
