Book of the Month Update

As you know, our theme for our first ever Book of the Month was "Don't Judge a Book by Its Cover." Students were asked to read a book with a cover that ranged anywhere from weird to hideous. Books were to have been read by Friday. A story mapping worksheet was assigned over the weekend. Students that completed it (in DETAIL...so that it was clear that they read the book) were invited to eat lunch talk about books in my room Monday.

Congrats and thanks to the following students:

Kayla, Kaylen, Keturah, Renard, Danielle, Suhmer, Alexandria, Jenna, Tamerica, and Selena!

Now we'll be moving on to a couple of wrap-up activities with these books, one of which is to design a new digital cover for the book.

Even if students didn't get their story map form completed by Monday, they can still participate in future meetings and the activities. They just have to complete the form first!

Stay tuned for more updates, and for the announcement of the November/December book theme!
