It’s a Book

We have been learning about reading and writing with blogs. We are participating in a  global collaboration project called The Student Blogging Challenge in which students and classes from around the world join together to work on improving their writing through blogging.  This project also challenges us to learn new web tools that support and enrich our learning.  We learn how to communicate and collaborate with others around the world.

We know that we are also using our blog to practice our independent and partner reading with our parents. Reading includes: independent reading, partner reading, and listening to a book being read aloud We know we can also read books on the iPad or the computer.

We will also be starting book bags for at home reading.  This is are a fun way to do your daily reading homework, and a great way for you to share your learning with us.  We will be blogging about our reading as a way to share our reading reflections with each other.  I am excited to start this type of book sharing. Yay for reading!

      Dear Lily,
      I love Ivy and Bean, too. Have you read the Eerie Elementary School series? I think you might like those, too. They are a little mysterious and are funny as well.

    Dear Mrs. Amri,
    I have a favorite book. It is………My Little Pony and also Magic Tree House books. I liked the video when the donkey did the loud noise in the other seat. That part is hilarious. And I liked the part where it yells “It is a book!” and I like the part where the mouse says “by Lane Smith.” And you are the kindest teacher I ever met.

      Dear Blake,
      Thanks for your comment. Those are great books and good choices for your reading time. I agree with you that the character of the donkey is hilarious. You are so sweet to say that about me. I can say the same thing about you, Blake! You are one of the kindest students I have ever met. Keep up the kindness. You matter and can change our world! We need more kindness, and . . . great dancers. Keep that up, too.

    Mrs Amri,

    My favorite book is Biscuit makes a new friend, Pete the cat books, and Lulu’s wild party. In lulu’s wild party, it’s about a ladybug who has a birthday party and has all of her bug friends over. My favorite part is when they jumped in the mud puddles!

    Mrs. Amri-

    My favorite book is, Ira Sleeps Over. I read this book when I have sleepovers over at my grandma and Papa’s house. The big sister is very sassy. Ira is trying to figure out if he wants to bring his teddy bear, or if he doesn’t want to bring his teddy bear to the sleep over. He is going to have a sleepover at his neighbors house whose name is Reggie. I like this book and have good memories of it because it reminds me of my sleepovers with my grandma.

      Dear Payton,
      Thank you for your comment. Isn’t that interesting how books can bring back great memories of where and when you read them? You will probably always love Ira Sleeps Over even when you are all grown up. Thanks for sharing your ideas with the class on the blog.

      Dear Isabelle,
      Thank you for the comment. The Pigeon books are hilarious. I love them, too. I have to say I really love all of Amy Krauss Rosenthal’s books. I love Exclamation Mark and Chopsticks. They always make me laugh. I hope you read some of the other books she wrote that I have on my author of the month shelf. They are all great books.
