Our Chapter Read-Aloud

Hi there!

We are continuing to welcome new students to our classroom, and we are getting so much done!

Today, we discussed the many ways to count when we are skip counting. Families, ask your students any multiplication problem involving zero. They are experts at them. 🙂

We reread Drummer Hoff today, and we practiced reading it chorally as a class as well.

AND!!! We had a chance to read the first chapter of Poppy by Avi. Avi is one of my all-time favorite children’s authors, and he’s extremely versatile. He’s written everything from The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle to Crispin: The Cross of Lead to the Dimwood Forest series, which started with Poppy.

In the first chapter, we meet Poppy and Ragweed, two mice. We also meet Mr. Ocax, who is a horned owl. I mentioned that I’d post a picture of a horned owl here.

Could this be Mr. Ocax's cousin?

I’m still trying to track down a good photo to compare the size of an owl to the size of a mouse. When I find one, I’ll share it with you.

Enjoy your long weekend! See you on Tuesday!
