Life Lesson #11...

The Power of Literacy - Be a Reader

*This is such a powerful video clip with a message that is so important.  

*To me the message is all about the power of reading and the hope of reaching all goals.

*I show the video to my students and then we do a class discussion about it.

*After the discussion I have the kids write in their notebooks.

*They can write about their reactions, thoughts, feelings, or what this video reminds them of.  

*Another aspect they could write about is what they think the "message" of the story is.  

*At the end of our writing time, we have a few of the students share their notebooks.  

*This is one video that I know I will show several times throughout the year!
