One of my students wrote a five-paragraph essay arguing Jon Klassen should win the Caldecott for his illustrations in The Wolf, the Duck and the Mouse because the pictures demonstrate bravery and courage. In the above trailer, the illustrator and the author say they're the mouse and the duck, but what about the Wolf? That's up to the students to decide.
Activity Name: What About the Wolf?
Activity Description: Rewrite the story from the wolf's point of view. Be sure to include an exposition, two rising action points, a climax and a resolution. Have fun!

Weekly Wall Recommendations
For the 2018-2019 school year, students will be choosing books to display on our classroom recommendation wall. The wall is a lending library. It showcases the various literature choices in the classroom, celebrates students' voices and choices, facilitates getting to know each other through our literature choices, and facilitates communication with the global learning community.
