May 17, 2013: Book Treasure Book

This week we read Super Supper for our book treasure book. Today, your child should have brought home a retelling sheet, their envelope and a little snake. This is a great book for sequencing events. Students can retell the order that the snake ate the animals. Sorry, I couldn’t find a recording or video of the book…..so, you’re on your own this week! Don’t forget, if you would like to leave your retelling here, just click on comment and don’t forget to write “blog” on your retelling sheet. Retelling sheets are due by Tuesday.
