Group work and Homework update

Today, groups began exploring Cinderella tales from a variety of cultures. I have 15different versions of the story in picture book form. It was quite a fun activity, and we'll continue with it tomorrow.

There is no homework for tonight, except perhaps getting a head start in the non-fiction book for next marking period.

Homework for the long weekend will be to make a final draft of the Independent Reading Response to Text (the one the students wrote about their outside reading book). Most students did not receive back their second drafts yet, but will get them tomorrow to finalize over the weekend.
