ADVENTURES IN READING CLUB WITH MRS. HOUSTON
Did you know fish can have feelings? Fish can be happy, sad, or afraid of the dark, just like you and me. The fish I speak of are fictional, of course. It’s funny because only in the literary world could a child and a fish possibly have something in common. Last week during Adventures in Reading with Mrs. Houston, first and second grade students listened to the story, “The Pout – Pout Fish in the Big- Big Dark” written by Deborah Diesen and illustrated by Dan Hanna. Students discussed how they could relate to Mr. Fish with one another and then created their own Pout-Pout fish. They wrote about times when they pout, but also times that they smile. The students’ most favorite reason to pout: not getting to do something at home! We had such a great adventure in reading!
ELEMENTARY STUDENTS LOVE NEW READING ROOM!
A giant thank you to all of those who have been volunteering their time to put together the new Elementary Reading Room for our students. Elementary students are having the best time visiting the Reading Room every week as a class, browsing through the different shelves full of books, and choosing a book to read or take home with them. The Elementary teachers and students want you to know that they LOVE their new Reading Room and they appreciate your hard work!
