Friday, August 29, 2014 - As we reviewed reading fluently and with expression, we enjoyed our classmates' poetry readings. The props they chose to bring in brought the words to life!
Ariel and Skyelar performed the poem titled, "The Creature In the Classroom" by Jack Prelutsky. The dinosaur prop was a wonderful addition. In the poem, the Creature swallows the teacher!!! Ariel was the teacher! Yikes!
Floyd and Sean shared the catchy letter from Jon Scieszka called, "Dear Reader." It captured our desire to read and re-read poems with unusual and funny stories. "A dog who does homework? Ants in the lunchroom? An ice cream fountain mountain?..." How can we resist? :-)
