Last Friday, we finished reading "One for the Murphys" for the Global Read Aloud. This six week experience was pretty cool, as many of us communicated with other students through our blogs, we Skyped another class for the first time, and we tweeted with the author Lynda Mullaly Hunt. Below are some of our six word stories inspired by "One for the Murphys." This kind of story is a great way to practice critical and creative thinking because we have to carefully select only six words and one powerful image to convey a message. These were our first attempt and we were still learning how to cite Creative Commons photos at the time these were created, but they really show how well we connected with the book and its characters.
As with all good books, many of us have strong opinions about the ending. We will be writing letters to the author to share some of our thoughts and suggestions.
We are a class of Grade 6/7 students in Surrey, BC, Canada. This blog is one way we will share our learning with the world!
