February 24, 2013: Book Treasure Book

Friday we read the story Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon for our book treasure. I am going to try something new with the response sheet from now on. I will still send home the response sheet to fill out like normal or your child can record their response on the blog in the comment section. Just write “blog” across the response sheet so I know to look it up on-line. Please look for the book on the blog and comment under the book. If you have any questions just let me know! This week our book treasure is Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon. It is a wonderful story about being yourself and standing up for yourself. Take a peek at the video.
