Howdy Sonntag Community! Check out (pun intended) what's been happening in the #gselibrary this week!
This week, Kinder Readers heard the story The Biggest, Best Snowman by Margery Cuyler. During the read-aloud we discussed descriptive words as well as hunted for the secret snowman hidden in the illustrations. After the story, Readers completed a gingerbread symmetry sheet where they colored their gingerbread men symmetrically.
First Grade Readers heard the story Anna's Wish by Bruno Hachler. The Readers brainstormed things that they have wished for using Padlet:
It was great to hear some of the Readers' connections to this story about a girl who wishes for snow. I wonder if we will have snow this year in North Texas?
Second Grade Readers are still enjoying reading The Story of Diva & Flea by Mo Willems. The students also learned some great facts about the Eiffel Tower since it plays a big role in this story. Second Grade Readers will continue to hear this story over the coming weeks. Hopefully more Second graders will become 2x2 Club Members!
This week, 3rd Grader, 4th Grade, & 5th Grade Readers have been exploring the art of the graphic novel!! Our Sonntag Readers LOVE graphic novels and they have enjoyed exploring the intricate details of the graphic novels we have in our Sonntag library collection. In the coming weeks, the Third Grade Readers will continue to dive into graphic novels by rotating through graphic novel stations.
Sonntag Wee Readers also listened to the the story Anna's Wish by Bruno Hachler. The Wee Readers loved doing the snow finger-play as well as singing a song using a "snow voice level" (a.k.a no sound). After the story time, the Wee Readers created snowflakes using strips of paper, glue, and lots of stickers!
