April Pulley Sayre's beautiful texts always make me smile and feel as though all is right in the world. This book has very few words. It's sparse text is perfect for a quick read aloud. I'm including an origami activity below. When we lived in Japan, my son's Japanese language support teacher turned us on to this site. We've been using it ever since.
Activity Name: Origami Squirrels
Activity Description: Follow the directions on the sheet below. If you're never tried origami with your class, it's a good idea to invest in origami paper. It's much thinner than typical paper, so it's easier to fold which leads to less frustration and more success.
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.
