Welcome to the Calming the Chaos Blog Hop hosted by 2peasandadog.
All of us bloggers have come together to share our top tips for making the last month of school run smoothly. Visit each of our blogs to learn something new and catch a freebie or two!
I don’t know about your students, but my kiddos have been a bit RAMBUNCIOUS (AKA-wild) to say the least! It’s as if right after testing finished all of the rules we learned at the beginning of the year just flew out the door right along with our testing books.
So in an attempt to Calm the Chaos, I have decided to introduce a Critics Corner in my classroom. Since my students absolutely LOVE listening to read alouds, that is what we will be doing with the books above. (To grab yourself a printable copy of the list above simply click on the picture.)
Their is a twist though… because my group is quite opinionated, they will be critiquing the stories. They will write out their reviews on the sheet you see above and give each story a 1-5 star rating. (Grab your free copy by clicking the picture.) Of course they will need to explain their ratings. At the end of the day they will also have an opportunity to share their book reviews in our Critics Corner.
