We continue to work on skills and strategies that will make us all STRONG readers!

The Lions of Little Rock is over and we are working in small book clubs reading, independently, The Tiger Rising.We continue to read and react to the text. Weekly, we also meet in our book clubs to have book talks. The students have rubrics that they use to guide them in meeting my expectations.

Some questions you can ask your student to spark a conversation:
*What sad things have happened to Rob?
* What do you think about Rob's dad?
* What is in Rob's suitcase?
* What is Sistine like?
*What suggestions do you have to help Rob deal with his sadness?
*Would you be friends with Rob? Why?
*Would you be friends with Sistine? Why?

Keep talking about and sharing books with your students. We have to model what strong readers do!
