Make Cycles

Our course is organized by two week “make cycles,” a term I borrow from Connected Learning. We will read, discuss, and make things based on the children’s books we’re reading. You can find the “weekly work” for each cycle in the drop down menu above.

Google+ Community

We will share most of our work in a Google+ Community. We can upload images, respond to each other’s ideas, and share links and artifacts here.

Up Next for Weeks 8 & 9: Free Verse Novels, Picture Book Resource, and Nerdy Book Club

Hi everyone,

Enjoying your makes for your chapter books! And so glad that it looks like most of you really enjoyed your book choice. #Winning!

The next Make Cycle for Free Verse Novels can now be found from the drop down menu and HERE. Notice that there is no Wednesday response this upcoming week, but instead, a longer response for Sunday, Oct 21. You’ll notice that I’m asking you to read a blog from Donalyn Miller’s Nerdy Book Club site this week. I hope that you’ll bookmark the Nerdy Book Club website; I find that site (in addition to Goodreads) to be one of the best ways to hear about new children’s books.

Also, please keep in mind that your picture book resource is due anytime before Oct 26, so you might want to get ahead of that this week. You can find the Picture Book Resource assignment on the Assignments page. Remember that you are assigned a picture book author: link to the author list in the assignment description, in the Make Cycle, and HERE too. Chad already shared his on our G+ community and it looks great if you want an example. Thanks Chad!

Grade update once the Makes are up tonight, most likely on Tuesday (Oct 16). Thank you everyone!
