Each Wednesday one student has the opportunity to share a book of his/her choice with the class. This week, Aryan had the opportunity to share one of his favorite books.
Students are given one week to choose a “just right book” to share. 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:
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie
written by Laura Numeroff
illustrated by Felicia Bond
If a hungry little traveler shows up at your house, you might want to give him a cookie. If you give him a cookie, he’s going to ask for a glass of milk. He’ll want to look in a mirror to make sure he doesn’t have a milk mustache, and then he’ll ask for a pair of scissors to give himself a trim….
The consequences of giving a cookie to this energetic mouse run the young host ragged, but young readers will come away smiling at the antics that tumble like dominoes through the pages of this delightful picture book.
