Today we started the Table of Contents and added our first notes - all about genre! We created genre "pockets" and then worked in small table groups to sort descriptions of several books into the pockets.
We also launched the IRP for the year today -- that's our Independent Reading Project. Students are to choose a book that is appealing to them and make sure to bring it to class on Monday -- and EVERY DAY AFTER THAT! We talked about making sure to choose a "Goldilocks" book -- one that isn't too hard, or too easy, but just right.
