Ms. Lirenman has been reading us one chapter a day from a book called My Father's Dragon by Ruth Stiles Gannett. As she finished each chapter this week we were left wondering what would happen next. On Wednesday we made comprehension drawings to link our thinking to what we might learn more about in the next chapter. You can check out these blogs on our individual student blogs under the "comprehension drawing" category.
|Here is a sample of one of our comprehension drawings. Check out our student blogs for more samples.|
The thing is we are not the only class reading this book. We are part of a very large group of grade one students reading and commenting on the book. We are in a book club and it even has it's own hashtag. The book club was created by Mrs. DeGroot a grade one teacher in Iowa. We, and many other classes are tweeting our predictions, connections, and wonders to the the twitter hashtag #1bc14. Tim Kaegl, a teacher whose class is also part of the book club made a map of all the classes participating.
Here are some of the tweets we've been reading and learning from. We can't wait to see what happens next.
