We started a new chapter book in class today. It's called My Father's Dragon. This Newberry Honor book is full of adventures and wild animals. Our daily chapter book read aloud provides students with exposure to challenging vocabulary and encourages readers to stretch their imagination muscles as they imagine characters, setting and plot points in their minds. Some students do their best listening while they are drawing or doodling. Today Jasper sketched out a map of Wild Island, one of the settings in our story, as he listened to the read aloud.
The first grade and kindergarten students of the Otter class invite you to explore our site and enjoy this reflection of our school life.
