Great lesson. I like that students can bring in their own favortie books.  That helps students make great text connections when they like the book.  I also like the use of the iPad.  I have used scribble press before and I really enjoy it and so do the students.

This was a great lesson on characters. I like the use of the Pearson Envision it! and the ipad app. I also like that you and the students use their favorite books. That could really foster excited readers!
