Friday Linky Party. I love this party :)
Five for Friday with Doodle Bugs Teaching! Here are five random things from this week....
1. I cut my cat's hair. She loved every minute of it...it was like a spa day for a cat...however I believe I'm Edward Scissorhands!
2. I just got my daughter this book for her birthday on Thursday (2/21). I haven't read it yet, but it looks great. It reminds me of the "Choose Your Own Adventure Books."
I was going through some stuff, and I found a "Blast From the Past!" I found a Mailbox Magazine issue in the filing cabinet downstairs. I bought this magazine years ago! This issue was dedicated to writing. Ten years and Common Core later, that magazine I've saved is perfect for Common Core! There were all sorts of writing ideas and prompts to use with picture books.
These are some of my favorite picture books to use with writing. I always stop students at different parts and have them write down predictions in their Writing Journals about what they think the main character will do next, or what is going to happen next in the story. I let students share these predictions with another student, to get them talking about their thinking.
