A few weeks ago we started reading groups. Some of the groups are reading books such as Kira-Kira, Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key, and As Small as a Elephant. These books are all great books. These groups become our own little book clubs and each week meet to see how many pages we will read and each week we will write about the story in our reading notebooks to we come to our group with things to discuss. The focus of these groups is to identify why the characters are making certain decisions and what social issues can we identify.
