My class really enjoyed last week's basal story, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type. Because the story is so imaginative and funny, they didn't mind the repeated readings I always have my students do.
During the week I showed them a Youtube video that has a man signing the story. Just before starting their culminating activity, a written retelling, I had them listen to the video twice more (at their request). I had one of my 2ndies write an almost-verbatim retelling!
A big thank you to my Central Elementary family for the beautiful daisy bouquet following my cataract surgery today.
