When we came back from February vacation we started our non-fiction writing on persuasion. Each student brought in their favorite book and shared it with the class and then orally told us what they liked about the book, why they love the book and try to convince us or persuade us that we should read their favorite book too! We then made posters advertising our favorite books. The students did a great job on these posters and when people walk by our bulletin board they stop to read our posters. Just this past Thursday Mr. Donoff helped the students make their own book review videos using the information from the posters they created to persuade others that they should read their favorite book! When the video is completed I will try to post it to the blog for everyone to see.
