But I don't want my students to feel that they have to constantly perform for others to feel important. So, we also read the book I Like Myself! (If your student was here last year, he or she should already have this book at home. It was a gift from our Read 20 program from last year.) The book is about a girl who doesn't care what others think; she likes herself just fine!
We used a Venn Diagram to compare and contrast the two books.
I have good news about the SECRET PROJECT... we're almost done! We finished the ABC list on our board. My brilliant soldiers thought of 26 animals, with only minimal help from outside sources. (Thank you Mrs. Amanda and Mrs. Watson!)
It's all typed up and ready for some illustrations. Tomorrow the kids will illustrate the book, we'll cut, glue and laminate, then ABBRA-KADABRA!! We will magically have an ABC book made by General Delk's Soldiers!
I'll make sure to have my camera ready to get the surprised look on Mr. Evan's face!
