Our class learned how to use Google Drive. Google Drive is a website our class uses for our work.You have many things you can do to pick from on Google Drive. We started to create a slide show, it is about our favorite book we read at independent reading. There is three slides. We wrote the tittle, why we like it, and we made a bubble map for the main character. We put all our slides together and made one slide in all. It looks really cool. Please view the video.
PLEASE LET US KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF OUR SLIDE SHOW!
This last week of school we have been reviewing our reading logs and thinking about our favorite books of the year. There are so many books we have enjoyed this year, so it was hard to choose just one book to present in the following Google presentation.
Enjoy the show and be sure to come back each week this summer to find out what everyone is reading!
We are here to tell you about Read to Self. We do read to self to become a better reader. We do some reading strategies. We are going to teach you Check for Understanding. We do this strategy when we are reading a book to make sure we comprehend what we are reading. Here’s what we do. Ask, Who’s in the story? What’s happening in the story? We do this every couple of pages or at the end of a chapter. If it is a a non-fiction book, we ask the question, What is this part teaching us? or What is this part about?
This spring we enjoyed Book Clubs during Partner Reading time. Partners chose a topic to research and then decided on a project to show what they learned. Here’s a video of one partnership. They also do a great job explaining how we read and took notes during Partner Reading time. Take it away “Owl Girls”!
