September 23, 2011: Book Treasure Book

Today, we started doing our Book Treasure Books. Our first story was Owen, by Kevin Henkes. Your child should have brought home their brown envelope, a retelling sheet and a little yellow felt square. The yellow felt square is the Book Treasure. It is to help your child remember the story. They need to do a written retelling of the story on the sheet that they brought home. The retelling sheet and envelope are due back to school by Tuesday. The yellow felt square should be kept in their treasure boxes at home. If your child does not return the retelling sheet and envelope next week, they will not get the next book treasure. If your child would like to listen to the story again, they can watch the Reading Rainbow video above. They start to read Owen at 4:22, if you would like to fast forward to that part.
