Our first author study is Andrew Clements. We will be reading some of his books in class, but you will need to choose one to read at home. We will be reading No Talking, Frindle, and A Week In the Woods, and The Report Card in class. Please choose a book by Andrew Clements other than those, and one you have not read before. We have several of his books in class that you may borrow. You can also find all of those titles at the Springfield Public Library.
The books available in class are The School Story, The Last Holiday Concert, Lunch Money, and The Landry News.
You will then need to do some kind of project to share with the class about your book. We have discussed some ideas in class, and those include writing a song about the book and performing it for the class, write a newsletter with articles related to the book, dress up as your main character to tell us about your book, act out your favorite part of the book, or just about anything else you can think of that will be a way of sharing your book with the class. Keep in mind, all of this project will be completed at home, but you can bring your book to school to read during free choice reading time.
Follow these links for even more ideas:
By next Friday (September 4th), I need you to post a comment telling me which book you are going to read and what your project will be. You don't have to include the details, but I would like for you to have a general idea of what you would like to do.
The actual projects are due September 30th. We will all share our projects with our classmates that day. I can't wait to see what creative ways you decide to share your reading with our class!
