Our Acting Debut!
Do you remember the show "Reading Rainbow"? This show was a very predominant force in my childhood, and one of my favorite parts was when the children at the end would review the books. So, we have started on the same endeavor. About 2 weeks ago, the children were asked to pick a book that they felt our classroom library would not be the same without. Following a series of activities talking about characters and other story elements, the students began decorating their backgrounds for their movie. Starting next week, they will be using FLIP video cameras to film a commercial talking about how their book is the best, and why other students should read it. I cannot wait to see how these turn out! I will email all of you the final product, so keep a watch out for the movie in your inbox!
