Writing Choices

This week our must do in small group reading is a writing extension.  

Their choices:

1) Silently read & write questions for others (Battle of the Books)

2) Rewrite your favorite part of the novel from another character's perspective.

3) Create a reader's theater script of your favorite part.

Here's one student example for her favorite part in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets:

One of my students took the idea of reader's theater and ran with it:

She made it her own by combining characters from two novels!  

She used Rob and Sistene from The Tiger Rising and Percy and Annabeth from The Lightning Thief.

I love watching them interact with their material in new and exciting ways.  It's wonderful when they make connections with and between texts!

Happy reading!
