Classroom Reading (week beginning 11/20) and Independent Reading

ReadingPushing Up the Sky by Joseph Bruchac is our reading selection this week.  This selection is written as a play.  Students will each get a part, practice reading it aloud as a play with expression, make props and scenery, and perform it for their Book Buddies!

We will also continue to read books by Eve Bunting and make connections between them and her other books and her life.  (think like an author).

Independent Reading:  Students are encouraged to read regularly at home.  Students should read books that interest them and that are at their level.  Books read aloud to your students are also wonderful!


We are reading the BOXCAR CHILDREN by Gertrude Chandler Warner.   Our two classroom tigers visited the Gertrude Chandler Warner museum.  To see what they saw, click on the link below!

Independent Reading:  During the school year, students completing their reading assignment will be working in “just right books”.  They’ll read independently or with a partner, and write a Book Buzz to share with their classmates!
