Today was the last day to work in class on your Animotos. We will be sharing these on Thursday. Peer feedback is an important step in the learning process. When we are given a chance to improve what we are doing through constructive feedback, we learn what we could do better. This process is also valuable for the peer giving the feedback as learning to use criteria to guide the process and developing the skills to help others move their learning forward helps our own learning.

Comment: It has been about three weeks since we began our reading program in the class. You have had an opportunity to dig in to novels you wish to read and have learned more about the different types of genres. Now, I would like to hear from you in regards to our classroom library. What types of books do we need more of? What specific titles do you think some of the class would love to read that I do not have in our library at this time? What genre(s) do not seem to have enough choice? Do I need to adjust the variety of reading levels we have to choose from? Please be thoughtful with your responses so that I can start working to build upon what we already have. I want you to be eager to read the books and pass them on to a peer as you know they will love them too.
I am a grade 7 teacher who has been teaching in the Surrey School District for over 28 years. I love to read, garden, walk, and spend time with family, friends and my golden retriever Kona.
