The 2014-2015 school year has come to a close. One of the best things about summer is time to read! I know I’m looking forward to reading a variety of books this summer. For those students who will be going into 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade in the fall, we want you to share about your reading here in the comments. All students should read 50 days, you’ve received a paper to record your reading, but I’ll attach a copy that you can print off and record the days, the book title and minutes. Second graders should read 30 minutes for 50 days. Third and fourth graders should read 45 minutes for 50 days. Each student needs to choose 3 books to share in the comments. These can be done at different times, but all comments should be done by August 21, 2015. School starts on August 25! First graders should comment on the First grade class blog and fifth graders on the fifth grade class blog.
Your comment must include your first name and grade, book title and 4 sentences that tell about the book. For example:
Mrs. Hino – 2nd grade. I read Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish. Amelia Bedelia is a funny book to read because Amelia Bedelia does exactly what Mrs. Rogers tells her to do. Unfortunately what she tells her to do usually has a different meaning that Amelia Bedelia doesn’t understand. I understand why Mrs. Rogers was angry, but I think she should have spent time making sure Amelia Bedelia understood the instructions before she left for the day. This is a good book to laugh at and to learn the multiple meaning of words.
Mrs. Hino – 3rd grade. I read Cam Jansen and the Mystery of the U.F.O. by David A. Adler. Cam Jansen is a girl who has a photographic memory. Whenever she wants to remember something she closes her eyes and says “click.” She is always trying to solve a mystery. In this book, she and Eric are trying to take a photo to win a contest. They help to solve the mystery of what appears to be a U.F.O. and some other kids trying to pose photos for the contest. Read the book to discover who is Neptune and how Cam and Eric solve the mystery.
Mrs. Hino – 4th grade. I read Gloria Rising by Ann Cameron. Gloria is a girl who seems to struggle with her teacher at school. One day when Gloria is going to the store she meets Dr. Grace Street, an astronaut. Gloria’s teacher doesn’t believe Gloria and so Gloria writes to Dr. Grace Street and asks her to write back. I felt sorry for Gloria when people didn’t believe her. You’ll have to read the story to find out if her teacher and classmates do believe her in the end.
