Clubs de los Libros! = Book Clubs! The children started meeting in book clubs last week and it was awesome! Read more about the book clubs below to learn how we prepared, how our first meetings went and what we are going to change for the next meetings. Until you get there though, just know that it was F-U-N and engaging for so many kiddos! Yay for books! 🙂
First off, thanks for being patient and letting me rest Thursday evening and write our classroom post this weekend (even if I forgot about it until a few hours ago – eek!). As always . . . we did some great things in our classroom last week. Read on to find out what we’ve been doing in room 203.

- What book are you reading for your book club? How did you select it? What did you enjoy most about your book club meeting?
- What has been your favorite part about having an adopted pilot these past few weeks?
- Tell me some of the themes you have used to write poetry. Why have you chosen these themes?
Book Clubs: As mentioned above, our first two book club meetings were SUPER. Rather than me going on an on about the clubs, why don’t I just let you look at what we did and explain the process through photos? I hope the book club meetings LOOK as great as they really were last week. 🙂
Poetry Themes & Anthology: We are in the midst of writing some incredible poetry that we are going to turn into an anthology for our class. Before coming up with a topic for our poetry anthology, we brainstormed several possible themes for poems. We will use many of the themes below as the “heartbeat” of each of our poems. Then, we discussed possible topics for our anthology and voted on our favorite. They had QUITE a list, but finally decided that our anthology is going to have poems that are all about summer. Fun, huh?
Skyping with our Pilot: We are just about to wrap up our sessions with our adopted pilot, First Commander Smith. Last week, we listened to him teach us the science behind flight and then had another opportunity to Skype with him while he was out of town.
2 Important Dates: As a reminder, this Friday is the Spring Sing at Robinson. This event will take place at 9:15am and there will be standing room only. In addition, the Fifth Grade Celebration will take place NEXT Thursday, May 29 from 6:30pm – 8:00pm. Please let us know if you have any questions about either of these events.
A Smile for You! Let this photo be a reminder of just how sweet and precious kids are – each and every day. Have a great week!
