3. Last week in 5th grade our reading standard was MAKING JUDGEMENTS. I found the perfect printable from Hello Literacy that worked like a charm. I read Library Lil by Suzanne Williams. It is an adorable story about a small town librarian.
There is a great mix of both boy and girl characters plots. After we read the story, my students were asked to make some judgements about either Library Lil or Bust em' Up Bill. Some of the questions were: Restaurants My character would like... because..., Stores my character would like .... because... The students really enjoyed this activity. I was able to level how I wanted different students to answer the questions. Some students were allowed to write only one because, while others wrote 3 reasons.
Next Week: Depth and Complexity Icons!!! :)
