Yesterday, my quarters started their Persuasion Lapbooks. They created the foldables, glued them into their lapbooks, and labeled them. Fridays usually means our weekly assessments. However, we had too much testing this week and no new material, so our Friday routine changed.
Today, we read a couple of persuasive texts. One came with our reading series and the other was Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin. (Experience in primary always comes in handy!!) We completed several anchor charts and the quarters were really into it! My partner said that, yesterday, quarters were talking about persuasion during Math! Woohoo!!
Our first anchor chart covered the text purpose and text features. Quarters copied this information into their lapbooks.
I plan to grade their lapbooks this weekend and I will try to post pics of those books. We sure had fun! I'll try anything to help them commit new knowledge to memory!
In the spirit of trying new things, and not succeeding a possibility, I end with another Potter quote (you're surprised I'm sure!):
“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all - in which case, you fail by default.” --JK Rowling
