We are rowing Play with Me this week. It may well be a favorite as of the very first day because it is full of animals! Meadow and pond animals... some of which we see and hold on a daily basis. :)
On Mondays we always read our story with a cold read and reread knowing the story line. It is important for children to get the flow of the story so I always try to do a storytelling activity to be used everyday while reading.
Today after the second reading I had the girls decide what the story made them think of (connection) and they wrote in their journal.
They also matched riddles and the animals to use for retelling.
EK loved reading the riddles and SJ loved guessing!
It's going to be a very fun week!
