Today was the kick off for the Global Read Aloud. This project unites students from around the world through sharing of novels. This year nearly 300,00 students from 60 different countries are reading one of four titles. Division one along with divisions 2 through 5 are all reading One for the Murphys. Our class will be connecting and blogging with the class we met last week through Mystery Skype from Austin, Texas. This is a great opportunity for students to experience learning well outside the regular classroom walls. If you would like to follow our blog please click the Global Read Aloud link. We will begin blogging in the next day or two and continue until the first week in November.
1) Math - complete what was assigned today
2) Photos - please gather photos for a project we will be starting on Wednesday. See Fridays post for further details. You need to bring in the USB on Wednesday rather than Tuesday.
***3) Post a comment - this was not done well over the weekend. Many of you are struggling to get into the routine of checking and commenting every day (the weekend is just once over the 2 days). Make sure you are falling through with this as it is an expectation in our class.
4) Questionnaires - please complete the following and ask your parents to do the parent questionnaire.
5) Scholastic Book orders due Tuesday
Comment: Make a prediction of what you think happened to Carly that she has been put into a foster home. Use details from the first chapter as evidence for your thinking. Be sure to edit before hitting the publish button.
