Today we had writing workshop in class. The students worked on their myth and I had conferences with those that were ready to see me. I am hoping that by next week we can begin work on a different writing piece as we take a break from this one for a while. The students that waited to have a conference with me were either reading their books or preparing their book talk presentation during class.
Read at least 20 minutes. If you are beginning your book for December remember that is just needs to be a nonfiction book. This can be a biography, autobiography or memoir. It could also be a book about history, science, etc. Feel free to check the books that Mrs. Butler has available in the library at the following website: http://library.fcps.net/cataloging/servlet/presentadvancedsearchredirectorform.do?l2m=Library%20Search&tm=TopLevelCatalog You can type in a keyword, such as “animals,” “space,” or just type in “nonfiction.” If you click on the title of the book it will take you to a new page with a little information about what the book is about.
Prepare your book talk for on Thursday.
