Today we started the book Frindle by Andrew Clements. We've only read the first two chapters, but we're hooked. Here's what we know so far...Nick Allen is a fifth grade student in Mrs. Granger's class. He might be a trouble maker, but we're not sure yet. Mrs. Granger is a hard teacher who really likes her dictionary. We're not sure what a Frindle is, but we're excited to find out. Stay tuned!
Read aloud is one of our favorite times of the day. We get to sit back, relax, and enjoy a story. Of course it's not all fun and games! We have to be listening because we always write about our read aloud books in our Reader Response Journals the next day.
This is a great skill to practice at home. Ask your child questions about the books you read. Try these: What happened in that story? What do you think will happen next? What is the problem in this story? What is the solution? What is your favorite part? Why?
