I love books that celebrate the importance of story. The Storyteller will transport students to other places whether it be a location in the book, or a place in the heart of their own story. Plus, there's step-bystep instrctions for creating an origami cup in the guide. A story and a little origami can calm the crowd on a jazzed-up day.
Activity Name: Quench Your Thirst: An Origami Activ ity
Activity Description: "Readers are invited to write and draw in the “pool of blue”on this activity sheet as the book is read to them. When they fold the paper according to the origami instructions, readers will hold a cup filled with water, words, and images. This reinforces the book’s theme that you can quench your thirst with story!"
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.
