Today in class we went over the author's "fingerprint" sheet. I modeled it by using "My Side of the Story." All of you seemed to understand what it was that each box was requiring. We talked about how there are six boxes, and as you read your first book, you are to be putting stickies on the information that is being asked in each of the boxes.
Then I handed back the author exit slip that was due at the end of class yesterday. Some of you still have not passed it it. Please check Infinite Campus for grades.
Then I handed out a paper with some of the author's crafts that we discussed last year. This paper has explanations on them for each one. Remember these are not the only ones, you can look for others in your book.
Lastly, you were sent off to read in your books and use stickies to identify information from the sic boxes and to us the annotation sentence starters on the stickies
1. Read and record using stickies.
2. Fill in author's "fingerprint" worksheet as you are reading.
3. BRING IN RIPPLEFFECT PAPERWORK AND MONEY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE PLEASE.
