It's been another busy week in Mr. Barger's second grade. First, we're reading picture books in writer's workshop to think about small moment versus big moment stories. Two Cynthia Rylant stories were helpful in this cause:
(Big moment) (Small moment)
Another small moment story that was well enjoyed was Nighttime Ninja by Barbara DeCosta and illustrated by Ed Young. The goal of the ninja's mission, ice cream, can not be underestimated.
I'm also reading easy readers and early chapter books for my role as a Cybils Round 1 judge. I enjoy reading nominated books to share with my students.
Coming up this week
