Reading Blogs

All children are expected to be reading for at least 20 minutes every day! They may do this reading in an appropriate book, magazine or other source of engaging literature. Reading blogs can be accessed through Google Classroom.  Children are expected to blog their thoughts, questions, and reflections on the book they are reading and engage their classmates in literature discussions.  This method allows me to monitor and facilitate discussions but most importantly, I can be involved in thinking about reading!

You can blog about your book whenever you feel motivated to write about what you're reading at home (at least 5 blogs per trimester). When you write your blog include your thoughts, questions, and reflections about your book.  

Does your blog: (1) Include the title of your book and the chapters or pages you are blogging about? (2) Explain your thoughts about the book in a CLEAR and UNDERSTANDABLE voice? (3) Ask questions related to the text to help develop a DEEP UNDERSTANDING? (4) Include your REFLECTIONS on the book, which demonstrate your UNDERSTANDING of the text?

Know your audience-is your blog written: (1) With capital letters and proper punctuation? (2) In a scholarly voice? (that means no LOL, IDK, or emojis)
