Hello Everyone! Today, I am linking up with Jennifer from Mrs. Laffin's Laughings for her fun linky, A Peek at my Week.
I am also linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their wonderful linky Must Read Mentor Texts. This week's topic is language arts. I would like to share a mentor text I will use this week.
This week, we will begin a focus on point of view in reading. One of my favorite books to introduce point of view is a book of poems titled, Once I Ate a Pie.
This is a great poetry book where all of the poems are told from a dog's point of view. Here is an example of one of my favorites.
The illustrations are great too!
After sharing several of these poems with students, we talk about how they would change if they were told from the dog owner's point of view. I then have the students rewrite some of the poems in their writing notebook. Here is the example I use (from the poem above).
Point of view is one of my favorite things to teach. I am looking forward to sharing more resources with you soon.
As far as the rest of my week goes, I will be spending the majority of my time completing progress reports. They will go home with students on Friday.
After checking the weather for Monday and Tuesday, I am questioning whether we will have school or not. I hate falling behind with my plans, but I would sure put that time to good use if school ends up being cancelled!
Have a great week!
