Baseball and Books
"Dear Miss Foote,
I really think the Giants are going to beat the Tigers. Even though Miguel Cabrera has the Triple Crown, the Giants have the 2010 Rookie of the Year, Buster Posey. It does not matter if they have the best rotation because the Giants have won six straight elimination games. Please root for the Giants.
Enough baseball, onto other class related items. In Reading Round-Up (where everyone goes to 30 minutes of leveled reading instruction) we are working on characters, using Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary books. As we read our book, we added post it notes to the anchor chart. We kept track of a character, a description, and where we could prove it using the book. Then I copied their post-its onto the chart.
