With their book reports, 5th graders are sharing what their story is all about. Now don't think it's the old, ordinary book report. Mrs. Rex added her own little twist.
The format for the book report is way different. The students had to pick out items they thought would illustrate the story to their classmates. Also they put their items in a brown paper bag so their classmates couldn't see it. The students had to make up an award called "The Hero" to give to the person in their book they thought deserved it.
We got the privilege of sitting in the classroom, and the students were eager to share what their book was about. Here is what Mrs. Rex thought:
"I am always looking for new ways to engage my students in the learning process. I thought that my students would enjoy telling about their books using items from a bag. It also was a fun way to present book reports. My favorite part was when the students awarded "The Hero" award to a character."
