This week we celebrate Valentine’s Day on February 14th.
The library schedule is back to normal. This week the Kindergarteners will be reading Big Hugs, Little Hugs by Felicia Bond. Grades 1 – 3 will be reading Snowy Valentine by David Petersen. Find out how David produced the beautiful images for the story here.
This week, the primary grades will be reading “A String of Hearts” by Laura Elliott, a Valentines Day story. The intermediates are reading “Buzaak Chinie (The Porcelain Goat): A Traditional Afghanistan Folk Tale”. I chose a story from the Middle East as a “tie-in” to events occuring in several Middle Eastern countries, such as Egypt, Tunisia, and Yemen. We will look at a map of the Middle East, and locate Afghanistan. We will also discuss similarities and differences between Western folk tales and Middle Eastern folk tales.
