Welcome 5th Grade students!
As you know, we just finished reading chapters 1-14 in the book Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen. What a great book, right? I bet you can't wait to find out what happens! For homework last night, you were asked to record your reflections, thoughts, and ideas about the book and what's been going on so far. You will be needed those reflections along with your book for today's assignment.
Similar to our Wikispace discussion, we are going to participate in a whole-class discussion using Blogging. Once again, you will be graded on your effort and participation! I know this is a new concept for most of you, so be patient with yourselves! Over time you will become blogging pros, but for today just try your best to take part in our discussion and share your ideas!
