Well, the wheels in Ms. Jen's mind have been turning. How can we incorporate a "grown up idea" into our classroom? Easily! Chelby, you will still need to come to school to do this.
During reading workshop, one rotation will consist of responding to a class discussion question. It is like the historical fiction carousel in which you rotated around the classroom and responded to a prompt on the paper.
The rules to this are simple.
1. Respond to the question.
2. Read the comments posted by your classmates and respond to what they say as well. Remember to show respect for the opinions of others.
3. Double check your writing before you submit your comment-- this is another way that you get to improve and practice your writing skills.
Responding to the blog discussion counts as class participation.
Oh yeah, the other cool thing is that this will allow both classes to communicate!
Are you ready for your first discussion question?
Monday, February 18th will mark your 1,000th day of school since beginning kindergarten.

What are some of the lessons that you have learned (educational, social, emotional, etc.) since coming to school? (Be thoughtful, respectful, and reflective.)
With love, ponies, and lots of glitter,
