We read a great book called Destiny's Gift and discussed how the main character, Destiny, made a difference in her community. We also completed a sequencing activity and sequenced the main events that happened in the story. Finally, we wrote a summary of the book using the main events that we located in the text.
This week, we read another book called, Aero and Officer Mike. This book is about a Police Officer and K-9 officer. Then we watched a short video about another officer and K-9 officer. Next week, we will compare and contrast the book and the video using the information we learned.
We also spent some time discussing Veterans Day. We talked about what a Veteran is, why we recognize veterans in our country, and the significance of this special day. We read a book called, America's White Table and learned about the meaning of a white table on Veterans Day. Lastly, we celebrated this important day and thanked many local veterans at our Veterans Day assembly. We were so fortunate to hear the stories of many veterans and to celebrate as an entire school community! Thank you veterans!
