Today we got to know one another a little bit better -- ask your 7th grader what a roll of toilet paper has to do with that!
We also are already rolling on our Independent Reading Projects. This year, instead of book talks, seventh graders will be recording book "confessionals" (think: solo speaker, talking directly to camera, like on most reality TV shows). Today we looked at three different recorded models (we LIKE movies!) and then as a group, we created a list of what we liked and what we think should be included in a book confessional. That list is attached here for the group's reference. On Thursday, we'll be taking a stab at recording confessionals of our own.
