Product Description
Included in this packet are “selections” from two books, Bad Boy, by Walter Dean Myers, and The House on Mango Street, by Sandra Cisneros. Fifth grade students will do “close readings” to think and interact with the given selections. There are handouts I give to students that include a mini-lesson on writing summaries. There are also examples of “blogs” about two books, Wonder
and Mockingbird, that a fifth grade student wrote to demonstrate to students what good “Book Reviews” look like, including writing a summary of the book, excluding the ending. Students then have an assignment to write “blogs” about the selections they have read in class, beginning with writing a document in “google docs” that
teachers can comment on. Students can then copy and paste revisions on a blog of choice, (I use Blogger). Students can choose to write their blogs with chosen “elements” from the demonstrated fifth grader’s blogs. These Book Review “blogs” can continue throughout the year as students independently read. Integrating literacy and technology is a motivating and
engaging activity!
