The Beanie Babies Program is a reading program designed for Cycle 1 elementary classrooms, to work in tandem with classroom reading practice routines, such as a silent reading or team reading routine. It utilizes stuffed animals in order to teach a wide variety of decoding and comprehension strategies to help young students learn to read. The program is comprised of a series of Beanie Babies, each assigned a particular reading strategy. For example, the Stretchy Snake beanie baby is assigned the stretching strategy in which the reader stretches out each syllable of a word, sounding it out, in order to help read the word as a whole; The Questioning Owl would encourage students to ask questions about what their reading in order to further comprehension, and so forth. Various posters can be placed around the classroom explaining the strategies connect with each animal. The students are then assigned an animal to help remind them of the connected strategy as they practice their reading.
The film Boyz N the Hood is a story about life in South Central Los Angeles. The film was wrote and directed by John Singleton in 1991. I chose this movie because of its relevance to the course and how it reflects pop culture in that time period. The opening line in the movie “one out of every twenty-one Black American males will be murdered in their lifetime” really catches the audience attention (Nicolaides & Singleton, 1991). This movie goes into detail and shows the life of three young males living in the hood of Los Angeles battling a life surrounded by drugs, violence, and questions of race. This film is a great image of how American pop culture was consumed in the early 90s.

Concept: This book cover looks Chinese in a 1930’s setting. This is achieved and done through the graphics, which tell and say “Chinese” without too much power that could have overdone it. Furthermore, the graphics also have a 1930’s feeling for me. Most of the weight of the “Chinese” comes from the dominant red color scheme and the dragons representing China. Though, the 1930’s is represented through the supporting smaller elements that the viewer doesn’t directly see, it is more hidden.
As Dr. Seuss once said, "You have BRAINS in your HEAD. You have FEET in your SHOES. You can steer yourself in any DIRECTION you CHOOSE". This quote applies to school in many ways. If you have ever used the statement, "They were doing it too" or "He made me do it" then you are wrong because as this quote says, you make your own decisions even if you are trying to impress your friends. Make your friends want to impress you in the right way. My school years have been filled with those statements and I still use them to this very day. Although everyone has had that moment when they blamed their wrongs on someone else they still have very interesting and happy memories. I am excited to share with you my 2nd and 3rd grade years.
