- Biography Read Alouds (Jacques Cousteau, Abraham Lincoln, Amelia Earheart so far, Jane Goodall and Jackie Robinson to come!)
- Small Group Guided Reading groups (author study-Jean Fritz, Dr. Suess or Tomie Depaolo and athlete study- Nancy Lopez, Michael Jordan or Pele). If time, we'll do an inventor study)
- Adjectives- while we read biographies, we are brainstorming adjectives to describe him/her using EVIDENCE from the text to support why we chose that adjective.
- Writer's Workshop- Each student will interview and write a biography about a classmate. They are SO excited about this. They were happy to learn that a biography doesn't have to be about someone famous. Everyone has a story!
