Week of June 26
We received an "invitation" to use the Book Head Heart framework ourselves for the poem The Journey on page 73. In this thread, I invite and encourage us to be learners as we consider our thinking.
For further "practice" as a learner, I invite you to read the "Dung Beetle" article Kylene referred to in the Take Two video and participate in a "digital discussion" on a web tool I use with students for discussions: Now Comment. My 3rd and 4th grade students love to "talk about texts" this way; I can upload text easily and we can comment back and forth. It is easy to use and typically I set discussions to private so only students to access (for us, this discussion is open to anyone). Check it out and if you are interested in using Now Comment in your classroom, let me know how I can help you!
Can Dung Beetles Battle Global Warning?
Note: My podcast here reflects on chapters 7, 8, an 9 thus including week 5-6 topics.
