As you know, Ms. Jen loves Pinterest. Take a look at this cool anchor chart about reading that I found! Remember, you have taken control of your reading life. Can you apply any of these reading strategies to the books that you're reading? If you think you can, leave a comment on the blog explaining how you're able to apply the strategy to your historical fiction book.
Today was another fantastic day filled with hard work. I hope that everyone has been doing their 60 minutes of reading and recording it on their reading logs.
Everyone's writing is coming along quite well and I have been impressed with the stories that I have read so far! I feel that the fifth graders have grown tremendously as writers. Shout out to Justin for getting his cast taken off and for writing with his hand and the iPad today!
I also want to compliment my homeroom for doing a stellar, super star job with compliments and appreciations this afternoon at our class meeting. I think that we gave quality, inside compliments in record time! Anthony R., it's always nice to hear that a student appreciates how hard I am pushing him to work to the best of his abilities; thanks again for that awesome compliment.
I am super excited to share tomorrow's homework assignment with you. If you're reading the blog before school, then here's the assignment: Write a reflection about Thursday's school day- tell me what happened since I will not be in class. If Ms. Jen enjoys it, your reflection may be published on Friday as the blog for Thursday!
With love, ponies, and lots of glitter,
