Each Wednesday one student has the opportunity to share a book of his/her choice with the class. This week, Keelan had the opportunity to share one of her 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:
Mouse, Mole and the Falling Star
By A.H. Benjamin
Illustrated by John Bendall-Brunello
“Mole and Mouse are the best of friends. They have fun together, and share everything. They trust each other completely, even with their deepest secrets. Then, one day, whilst lying side by side on a hilltop, they see a falling star. “It’s my star! I saw it first.” says Mole “No, I saw it first!” shouts Mouse. Their quarrel tears them apart, but as the days roll by they begin to miss each other…”
