Sharing Books We Love

Our Reading Challenge is underway and we have some great book projects! Here are a few:

This reader took nonfiction reading out of this world!

And look at the amazing Sketch "quotes" from a few other readers:

and here is a text about another book:

So many great examples of real reading going on in our 6th grade! Great job, Loveland Tigers!

This week we created digital Objective Angles Summaries from our short story," Good Enough."
We recorded them using LetsRecap.

 Here are a few Sketchnotes from students about how to create an Angled Objective Summary

.... and description of the conflict as well as type of conflict in the story.

One pair of students shared this:

  In good enough, the conflict was Dori wanted an expensive shirt that everyone had. For her birthday, she got an imitation shirt, because her family didn't have the money. She went to school in her “Orion” and the group she wanted to join noticed her fake, and made fun of her.

  The conflict was man versus man, and was external because the reason Dori wanted the shirt was because all the popular kids were wearing it. She wore the shirt to school, and tried to join the popular kids, but they knew she was wearing a fake.

What a great descriptive example with much vivid detail!

1st Week....Great Beginnings

Here are some images of us sharing books we read this summer and creating lists of books we want to find at the library or order from Scholastic. Students were so engaged and excited about books. The conversations were electrifying and centered around a love of reading. Great way to start the year!

Hello! I have had a wonderful summer as you can see above! Not only did I rest and relax, I played some Pokemon as well! Maybe a little too much Pokemon. You? 

I look forward to our time together this year and I can't wait to connect and reconnect soon! I look forward to a terrific year sharing books and creating some great energy around shared reading and writing! We will have a wild time reading this year and I am looking forward to sharing my love of reading with all of you! See you soon!  I have to get to the gym....
