This week we are focusing on plot and retelling during shared reading. Last week we worked on characters, setting, problem, and solution. This fits well with writing narratives in writing.
I plan to read Marley Goes to School by John Grogan.
Abby at the Inspired Apple has a wonderful chart for beginning, middle, and end that is inspiring the chart I plan to create. I love the language she uses and wish I had her artistic talents! She should really start publishing her wonderful work with an educational poster company!
I plan to have students make a flap book to show the B, M, E. Click on the image to grab your copy.
The amazing thing about this blog is that I have access to all of the materials I am creating. I have reworked things that I have already used in the past to put up and have created new things. I can get to them at any point and seem to have a better organizational system via blogging that my binders or filing cabinet. This venue also really helps me to think ahead and I am loving that!
