Today we skyped with Mr. Sapia! We skyped about whether students believe the school day should/should not be shorter. This is part of our persuasive literacy unit. Students have read various articles on this topic. They have each taken their stance and are working on drafting their own writing piece. Students were able to debate through skype with other 5th grade students at Rippowam Middle School. It was so much fun to hear their beliefs and be able to argue their point using specific reasons with evidence. After skype, students met in their book clubs to discuss their book! We are entering week 5 in our book clubs. 3 weeks left!
Please see pictures below of our fun filled day. Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
