Welcome Fourth Graders to Walking Reading!

‍Walking Reading meet for an hour on Wednesdays and Fridays for Literature Circles under the guidance of Ms. Keane.Walking Reading has officially started Wednesday, October 17, 2012. We are currently reading Mr. Popper's Penguins. They will be learning how to form a literature circle. Discussion Leader, Summarizer, Illustrator,Predictor and Word Wizard are the assigned roles. The group shares the results of their assignments and discuss the book with their members on Fridays. In addition, the members will be designing and discussing their books via the Wiki on Friday mornings. Designing and discussing the wiki will be part of their first project. Eventually, they will be split into groups to read other books.
The Wiki will allow students to express their ideas about the books through technology. Using this as a tool will give everyone an equal chance to give their input. The discussion will also allow them to respond to one another. Once the page is published, the wiki will serve as a tool to motivate other students in the school to read and check out those books!
