Where Children and parents can discuss their thinking, ideas and the world!
Click the button on the top and it will take you to a presentation, a video and a read aloud of Max's Dragon Shirt by Rosemary Wells that I put together for you.Once you click, go to the "Present" tab on the top right to open the presentation as a slide show and watch the two videos. Follow the directions on the presentation and then post your comments on the blog.
Do not forget to bring the words you chose in your language and the sentences back to school.
We have been very excited reading about these three characters and their adventures. We have learned many things about them from what they say and do. They have helped us build our vocabulary and our critical thinking skills as we ask questions and discuss the different books. After we read Yoko and Bunny Cakes, we read Yoko Writes Her Name, Yoko and the Paper Cranes, Max Cleans Up, Max's Dragon Shirt and Max's Chocolate Chicken.
Please look at our work. We have shared our thinking with all of our friends in our classrooms. I am very fortunate to collaborate this year with Mrs.Graye, Mrs.Aday, Mrs.Colon and Mrs.Harle. There is a lot to see so please take a look and post your comments. Give compliments to your friends and share your thoughts with your parents and caregivers.
Many of you have borrowed these books from the library. Please feel free to borrow them again either from school or from the town library.
