February 15th, Wright Middle

This week at Wright, we wanted to focus on working through as much of El Deafo as we could, so that the kids could start planning for their book trailers in the next few weeks. We really got in to the book because of it! We saw some great impressions, and we hope that all the time we spent laughing and having fun with the text will encourage them to keep reading outside of our time together. We had even more kids ask to take the books back with them this time, and we were a little sad we couldn't let them! We lost track of time at the end, but we started working on ideas for shooting their book trailers, asking them to think of scenes and how they would shoot them. They got some planning done, but didn't get enough time to really flesh them out on paper or in writing. However, we thought everyone might still want to see what they've been up to, so we decided to upload some of their previous art from other weeks! We hope you enjoy!

We also wanted to put a spotlight on one of our readers who did a great job this week. This is Patrick. He's a fifth grader at Wright, and his favorite book is Holes. He likes reading because it makes him a better writer, and that's what he wants to be when he grows up. It also helps you figure out life and people. Great job Patrick!
