Retelling Snowmen

This week, first graders are focusing on what the Caldecott medal is. We read Kitten's First Full Moon (image from bn.com) and looked at how the illustrations tell parts of the story that don't have words.

Then we retold the story using only illustrations on snowman pieces- beginning, middle, and end and then glued them into snowmen!

In addition, our paper chains around the library have been completed! My Monday classes before break made chains. The 4th & 6th graders did the main idea of a non-fiction book on the blue chains and details on the white chains and my 1st & 2nd graders retold stories on the chains using beginning, middle and end. They stretched quite a distance and give a nice January feel to our library!
