Apr. 23 – 27, 2012 Read-a-Louds


This week we will be talking about how to take care of the Earth. Author Todd Parr has an excellent message: “Every one of us can help protect the Earth and make it feel good. Remember: if we take care of it, it will take care of us.” The Kindergarteners and Grade 1’s will be reading Todd Parr’s, The Earth Book.

All other classes will be reading The Busy Beaver by Nicholas Oldland. The beaver is not very environmental, and he chews down many trees; will he learn to mend his ways when a tree falls on him?

Apr 11 – Apr 15 Read-a-Louds

With Earth Day coming up (April 22), this week we will read a story about recycling. Classes will be reading Michael Recycle Meets Litterbug Doug by Ellie Bethel. Litterbug Doug lives on the edge of town in his self-madeĀ garbage dump that is host to old TVs, tires, bottles and cans. Michael Recycle arrives on the scene andĀ teaches Doug a thing or two about recycling. The grade 7s will then take 5 lessons from the text and create Earth Day bumper stickers.
