The Peace Book by Todd Parr was an inspiration for us to write about what we thought peace means. In the same style of author Todd Parr, we each wrote a sentence and drew a picture that illustrates how we see peace. We are putting together our book to display in our class library.
Have a listen to what our classmates thought about what peace is.
How do we become better readers? READ, of course! Students were asked to reflect on what they love the most about reading, where they like to read, and what types of books they like best. We made a bulletin board of our responses and here’s a few of those responses…
We LOVE reading in our class. We are always eager to squeeze in any extra time to read. Last Friday, we held our first Flashlight Friday where students brought in a flashlight and found a quiet spot to read in the class. The lights went out and the blinds were closed. You couldn’t hear a pin drop. They were amazing readers.
Check out our quick video of what it looked like 🙂
Our first Flashlight Friday was such a success, we’ll definitely do more!
