Today the students read their books again in order to fill out a Chain of Events graphic organizer. I found this graphic organizer at the Read MHS web site. There are lots of great graphic organizers in Spanish there!
When they were done with their worksheet (graphic organizer), they began work on their Clifford Newsletter project. I thought this would be a great way for them to see what happened in the other books.
Here are the requirements for their Clifford Newsletter project:
The project must be in sections like a newsletter. They must have Headings/Headlines, and it must be neat and colorful.
Their newsletter must have two parts from each of the following:
A: Story summary, main character article, supporting character article, write a new ending to the story.
B: Advice column for one of the characters, editorial about an issue in the book, comic strip that shows the plot, advertisements/puzzles that relate to the plot.
This is the final teaching day for the Clifford Books reading unit. They will have the next two days in class and one computer lab day to work on their newsletter. Then they will present.
