Big Idea:Students will use a graphic organizer to define and give examples of four types of sentences (declarative, interrogative, exclamatory, and imperative), use them correctly in writing and recording a short story using an interactive voice recorder.
Big Idea:Students will illustrate a theme from Bud, Not Buddy through generation of a creative book report (i.e., flyer, newspaper, game, interview with the author, etc.). Through examination of these themes, students will make real world connections.
Big Idea:Because incorporating forms of artistic expression is an important part of learning, students will create a song/poem to explain the events and significance of the events in the book Bud, Not Buddy using voice recorder interactive technology.
Big Idea:Students will be participating in group discussions on chapters 6 & 7 in "Who Was Dr. Seuss?" We will also be filming video presentations of the biography reports the students wrote as a homework assignment earlier in this unit.
Big Idea:As we continue our biography unit, we will be practicing our note taking skills. But more importantly - today our biographies come alive through the use of technology. We will be enjoying the the video presentations created by the students.
