This week’s Book Treasure book is Franklin’s Christmas Gift.  Today, your child should have brought home their envelope, retelling sheet, and a little gift wrapped box. Please make sure that you return your retelling sheet by next Tuesday. Please make sure that you are writing down a detailed retelling. You should be including characters, setting, problem, solution, and main events. You should be using the back of the retelling sheet if you run out of room. Also, the students should be writing down their retellings, not the parents. Thanks!!! If you would like to listen to the story again, just click on the title below.
