where would you live

Over the last couple of weeks we have been reading books that are about
different "places" that are imaginary....created by main characters etc....

With each text the students worked in their reader's notebook envisioning,
noticing character traits, finding wow words, and connecting between texts...

Then the kids chose where they would like to live and wrote a paragraph explaining why!

Next up we are reading a short chapter book called The Chalkbox Kid....
they are really enjoying this unit that goes so well with the pretend communities
they have been working on in small groups (more on that tomorrow)!
