Okay, this trailer makes me super happy. It reminds me that soon the grass will be green, and that I'll be driving past baby cows on my way to work. The thirty degree weather will not continue forever. It also reminds me of something even more important-there is always enough love to go around. I love looking at The Curious City activity guides. They're always full of creative ideas. Enjoy!
Activity Name: Making Lists with Raisin
Activity Description: "As you can see on the cover and throughout the pages, Raisin is a list maker. In the book she has a list of “my favorite things,” “yuck!” and “places to run away to.” Whether your readers are
writing on their own or not, they can create their own lists. How?"
___ Print the Yuck! / Favorites lists on page 9. Print enough so that each reader can have one of
each. Cut the printed sheet in half vertically.
___ Set aside pencils or crayons for list writing.
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.
