It's time for another wonderful installment of Five for Friday brought to us by the wonderful and talented Doodle Bugs Teaching! This week was a complete whirlwind. It seemed like we had so much to do and so little time to squeeze it all in to meet some of our time tables... but somehow, I actually stayed almost on schedule. Here's a peek at the highlights:
We've been focusing in on character all week in reading! Students are noticing how complex characters can be! We talked about how characters have "layers" and students found "opposites" of a previous character trait and posted them on the Jot Lot this week to prove that characters go through changes in a story. Look at this rock star student citing the page number! Love it when they follow directions!
Head over Heels for Teaching's interactive character analysis posters! Students did a great job choosing higher level character traits from Rules and citing evidence. They are now choosing some of these traits for their character essays which they are writing about their book club characters!
Does anyone else tidy up before the weekend?
