This is the lovely picture book we are focusing on this week at school. The writing is just exquisite... We are also reading Bats by Gail Gibbons and comparing the way authors share the same material in different ways. Hopefully we will get some interesting nonfiction writing about bats as well. On Thursday I will introduce our own Slice of Life Challenge. It will be so great to get them motivated to fill up the binder journals that only a few of them have been working on till now. It is just the right time to work on this.
