The students have been working SO hard on their author study projects. This week they got to present their projects to the class. The kids are loving reading books recommended to them by their fellow classmates. Each student researched the author, read 2 books by the author, answered questions from the book, wrote to the author (we already got two responses!), created a photostory "book review" of one of the books, drew themselves in the style of their illustrator, and presented what makes their author unique to the class. Their pictures will be on display in the hall soon with a QR code to their photostory, but for now, here are their pictures with their self-portraits. I think they turned out SO great!
