Happy New Year!

Ok, time to get down to business! We really need to start making this wiki work for us.

You have two choices-

Each week you must log on to this wiki and write a response about what you are reading.

You may also choose to do this one week, and the second week log into your RAZ account and read and complete a meaningful activity.

At the end of two weeks, I will check to see if you have done TWO wiki responses ore ONE response and ONE RAZ log in. If you don't complete these, you will get an oops note.

Here is a sample about our current read aloud

I am glad to finally be starting our new read aloud "Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk". I will admit that I wasn't sure if this was one of the MCBAs that I really wanted to read. But so far, I'm kind of digging it! Based on what we've read so far, I feel kind of bad for the main character Jack. The author shows us many places where Jack's mom shows/says that she doesn't like Jack. This makes me as the reader sympathize with Jack. I think everyone's mom should love them no matter what. We also start to see and here that Jack is a bit of troublemaker, Maybe his mom finds him exhausting and frustrating! But in the part that she just finished, the mom actually defending him when he was accused of stealing the cabbages. I wonder if Jack's mom will feel differently by the end of the story (especially if he becomes a giant defeating hero)

What have you been reading?

hello mrs p you just offered me a book called the magic elephant and i really like it even though i wanted a break from animal books this is a really good book i am almost done with the book. some of the words are challenging but i can figure them out one i read the word twice. over all the book is nice

Dear Room 7,

I’m very excited to hear all your thoughts about what you’re reading on your individual wiki pages. I’ve really enjoyed all your enthusiasm about Silverwing. Even though this is my twelfth time reading it, I still get really excited about sharing it every year. *The genre of this book is definitely fantasy since I don’t believe that bats and owls have wars or detailed adventures together. I also consider this to be a genre of my own invention- called Animal Adventure. I love the character Shade; he’s one of my all-time favorites. *If I could talk to Shade, I would ask him if he thinks it was worth it to break the law and see the sun, especially after what happens to his colony as a result.

Your friend in reading,

Dear Team 7,

Good Job getting started doing wiki and RAZ.

Remember on your wiki-

  1. Please write like its a letter- Date, Greeting, Body, Closing, Signature

  2. Make sure to write about one book only (unless you are writing multiple paragraphs

  3. YOU MUST use sentence leads from the pink sheet in your response. These will help me see your thinking about what you are reading.

Use your time wisely during Reading block and you'll be able to get these done at school!


Mrs. P

Hi Payton,
Happy New Year!

I'm happy to hear about some of the different books you are reading. I have not read Wonder but I remember hearing a lot about it from other kids. What do you think of the character Auggie and how the author describes him?

Have you been enjoying our read aloud of Sophia's War? *I've noticed that the author Avi gave us a lot of background information in Part 1 of the book so that we would better understand this big adventure that Sophia is going to undertake in Part 2. Can't believe we are more then halfway done with it! Sophia has entered dangerous territory as she is now working at the Kennedy House, which is the headquarters for the British. It's kind of crazy that she is actually cleaning Major Andre's office and reading his secret papers! Who do you think the mysterious Mr. Moore is and what does it have to do with West Point?

Talk to you soon,
Mrs. P

Dear Room 7 student,

I am glad that I am reading Sophia's War__ out loud to you. I enjoyed reading it this summer and think it is making a great read aloud, It is a challenging book, with many old fashioned and difficult words so I think this may have been challenging for many of you to read on your own.

*The author Avi got me really interested when he ended Part One of the book with Sophia ready to seek revenge for the death of her brother William. I have been giving you some hints about what might happen. I will tell you that working at the print shop is key to what Sophia will do next and how she will get even with John Andre, whom she blames for not helping her brother.**If I could talk to Sophia, I would ask her if she is afraid to go after Andre.

What do think will happen next?

Talk to you soon,
Mrs. P:)

Dear Room 7 member-

You and write will write back and forth to each other about what we have been reading.
I will ask you questions that you can answer, and you can ask me questions too.

Make sure to always write about ONE book and to use SENTENCE LEADS to help you with
your thinking.

Your friend,
Mrs. P
