Reader’s Chair

Each Wednesday one student has the opportunity to share a book of his/her choice with the class. This week, Edward had the opportunity to share one of his favorite books with the class.

Students are given one week to choose a “just right book” to share in class. Students are expected to practice reading their book aloud to family and friends at home. Students present the book to their class, reading the book aloud, engaging the audience by making eye contact, showing illustrations and asking questions to check for understanding.

This Week’s IST Grade 2 Reading Recommendation:

Hi Fly Guy
by Tedd Arnold

About This Book
“A fly was flying. He was looking for something to eat. Something tasty. Something slimy. A boy was walking. He was looking for something to catch. Something smart. Something for The Amazing Pet Show.” The boy and fly meet and so begins a beautiful friendship.

Er, and so begins a very funny friendship. Using hyperbole, puns, slapstick, and silly drawings, bestselling author/illustrator Tedd Arnold creates an easy reader that is full of fun. With an eye-catching holographic cover. This is the first in a series of four.

About The Author
Author and Artist Tedd Arnold was a commercial illustrator for many years before his wife suggested he write and illustrate children’s books. His books No Jumping on the Bed! and No Water in the Tub! were inspired by his two sons.
