Week 2 of The Truck Project
*Our 'anchor' book will beGoodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. This is a fun story that features unique trucks that have real features (such as, a bulldozer), but the trucks also have human characteristics. This will give us an opportunity to compare real and pretend trucks.
*Begin researching real trucks! The children have each chosen a truck to research. The teacher will work with them one-on-one or in very small groups to read and write about the truck, understand its characteristics and function, and to draw a picture.
