Today was a lot of fun! I am so glad that so many of you are excited about your new books for partner reading! I love when kids scream because of the title they have been assigned, and I love even more when kids dig in to new books, even if they didn’t receive their first choice, working together to get into the exposition and assigning pages for homework. Some really great love of learning and love of reading is appearing in the 7th grade! Today, tell me about your partnership experience!
CRITERIA FOR SUCCESS:
1. Username. Title. Author.
2. I read ______ pages tonight.
3. Briefly summarize exactly what you read tonight in 2 or 3 sentences.
4. Talk about group reading — the pros and the cons. What was it like to read with friends today? How does reading with a partner help you? How does it sometimes hinder (not help) you? How can you maintain a partnership when you don’t see each other every day over Spring Break? What plan can you make to get reading done together?
Have fun, happy reading in your new books, and happy blogging!
