Rain by Manya Stoic

This past week we read Rain by Manya Stojic.  The story is about the animals predicting the rain using their five senses.  The story is repetitive and cumulative so I encouraged the students to help me with the senses as I pointed to my nose, eyes, ears, hands and mouth. After the story we talked about how the rain falling is part of the water cycle.  We also talked about the setting of the books which is the African Savanna habitat.  Both water cycle and habitats are subjects which the students are studying in their classroom.  I showed them the Magic School Bus (series) book about the water cycle and we talked about how the series was nonfiction  and each book was about a different subject (which is how nonfiction books are arranged) and therefore not together in the library.
