This week the 1st graders listened to the book Gaston by Kelly DiPucchio, illustrated by Christian Robinson. The students noticed that the puppies looked like they had been switched.
This week the 2nd graders listened to the book Mogie: The heart of the house by Kathi Appelt, illustrated by Marc Rosenthal. We talked about what mojo and cha cha meant. We also talked about Service Dogs, Search and Rescue and Show Dogs.
After reading the books, we talked about searching the catalog by Subject. The subject of both of these books is dogs. We looked at other books which are about dogs by doing a Subject Search.
