Our Litton RAPS students have been busy the past few weeks making postcards, placing book orders, and finishing up their literature circle books. They really enjoyed getting creative with the postcards from a book. Students illustrated something from their book (settings and symbols were a popular choice) and wrote a note on the reverse side. Many students wrote their notes to a character, recommending the book to a friend, or a note to the author of the book.
We are patiently waiting for our next Scholastic order to arrive, they can't wait to start new books soon! Today we worked on creating body biographies, where students chose a character and illustrated it's characterization. They chose which emotions, symbols, quotes, and thoughts would go into their biographies. We have two more weeks before MNPS Spring Break. We are ready to do more exciting activities with great texts.
