Your child should have brought home their envelope, retelling sheet and a “shimmering scale” to put in their treasure chest. Your child needs to write a detailed retelling of the story. Retelling sheets and envelopes are due back to school by Tuesday. If you would like to listen to the story again, just click below to watch a video of it on Storyline Online.

This week we read a wonderful story called, The Big-Wide Mouthed Frog. It is a traditional tale, illustrated by Ana Martin Larranaga.  In this story, a big wide-mouthed frog asks every creature he meets what they like to eat, but when he meets a crocodile he doesn’t like the crocodile’s answer. Today, your child should have brought home their retelling sheet, envelope and a frog for their treasure chests. Please help your child retell the story, this one is great for sequencing. Retelling sheets and envelopes are due back to school by Tuesday. If you would like to listen to the story again, just click on the title below.
