This week, the Kindergarteners will be reading the companion book to Jeremy Draws A Monster, by Peter McCarty. In The Monster Returns, the monster that Jeremy drew returns to annoy Jeremy with his many demands and rude disposition. But, Jeremy has a surprise for the Monster! How does Jeremy outwit the Monster? Stay tuned to find out!
While the Kindergarteners will be listening to Pete the Cat: Rocking In My School Shoes, the Grade 1 students will be reading a new story called Bear’s Loose Tooth by Karma Wilson. The Grade 2 and 3 students will be reviewing “How to choose the right book for me” through listening to the story Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians by Jackie Mims Hopkins. Goldie Socks finds a “Just Right Book” by using the Five-Finger-Rule: when selecting a book, turn to a page and begin reading to yourself – put a finger up every time you come across a word that you don’t know – if you end up with all 5 fingers up, the book is probably too hard for you – if no fingers go up, the book might be too easy for you – if 1 – 3 fingers go up, the book is probably just right.
Pete the Cat
This week the Kindergarteners will get a special treat when they visit the library: they will be listening to a recording of the story Pete the Cat: Rocking In My School Shoes by Eric Litman. You can also listen from home here.
