We have been embarking on quite an opportunity! Together with Mrs. Michelau, we have joined 500,000 other students around the globe to read together! Together we will enjoy, Fish in a Tree, the story of Ally who will, with the help of two friends and a gifted teacher, find her way.
Last week, we prepared by learning about a new website, writeabout.com. This interactive website allows teachers to communicate and group students from different schools to read their wring, make connections, and develop reading skills. Mrs. Michelau and Ms. Murk taught students about digital citizenship, log-in routines, and blogging basics.
On Thursday, we typed our predictions after looking at the title which seems to have misleading ideas about fishes and trees. The predictions were centered on a fish, a tree, and the relationship.
We were a little confused until Friday. After reading Albert Einstein’s famous saying,
we were able to think more about the idea of a fish and a tree. So, we added a classroom “wonderings” about what little we knew about Fish in a Tree. Most of us began to think that since a fish doesn’t belong in a tree, maybe this book was more about a person who was having troubles.
Today – such excitement! We snacked on goldfish,
listened to Voxer messages from our partner class,
We are so excited to be participating – please check back and visit while we grow, read, and write about Fish in a Tree.
