This week we started book treasures. Every Friday I read a book to the students and give them a token to remember the book. Over the weekend students need to retell the story to a family member and fill out the retelling form. This form and the envelope are due on Monday.
Friday I read the book Owen by Kevin Henkes. Owen’s fuzzy yellow blanket is his favorite possession. Everywhere Owen goes, his blanket goes with him. Upstairs, downstairs, in-between. Inside, outside, upside down. Everywhere! Owen’s parents are in despair—soon Owen will begin school, and he can’t take Fuzzy with him then. Whatever can be done?Everyone who’s ever had a favorite blanket will know exactly how Owen feels!
