The literacy concept we focused on this week was problem and solution. We related it back to The Lorax, and then read Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and the students identified the problem and solution in that story as well. After reading, the students wrote and drew about what they would want it to rain! They were so creative and came up with things such as emojis, candy, puppies, and friends.
This week we also started reading My Father's Dragon during snack time. We are reading about a chapter a day. We are practicing visualizing while reading (since there are no pictures) and drew the dragon that was described. We also will be applying all out concept skills such as character traits, retelling, and problem/solution.
