The Grade 2s have been hard at work practicing their paired reading within their classes.  They have also been having deep discussions about what their box books are all about and asking their friends about theirs.  

This week, however, the Grade 2s are taking those skills and putting them to use, by writing book reviews on their box books.  They needed to write who the author was and what their books were about.  Most importantly, their review included what their favourite part of the book was and why.  After that they had to give it a star rating out of 5. 

Learning to complete book reviews provides the children with the skills of critical thinking and reading for understanding.
