(and a little bit about what we did last week, too!)
Last week in the library, we learned more about how our library books are organized. Third graders learned about alphabetizing fiction books by their authors' last names. After the lesson, the students figured out what the call number for a book they had written would be and found where it would belong on the shelf. Maybe some day I'll be able to put an actual book by one of these authors on our shelves!
I've also enjoyed catchings several of our kiddos reading throughout the day. Here's Angelo reading at lunch:
And Mitchell reading during class:
I love that they are finding time to "read in the spaces," as Donalyn Miller would say!
This week, all of our grade levels will be introduced to this year's Bluebonnet Books. Any student who reads at least five of these books can vote for their favorite in January. You can read more about the Bluebonnet Books here.
This week, our fifth graders will hear from Zane and the Hurricane.
Our fourth graders will listen to The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus.
And our third graders will read Emily's Blue Period.
Have a great week!
