This week, we are learning all about neighborhoods. We learned that although our neighborhoods may be different, there are many things in our neighborhoods that are the same. We read the story "Franklin's Neighborhood". In this story, Franklin the turtle has a homework assignment to write about his favorite part of his neighborhood. This is a hard assignment for Franklin because he discovers he likes so many things! In the end, he drew a picture of all the people in his neighborhood because he thinks the people are the most important part of his neighborhood!
After we read the story, we brainstormed a list of ideas that tell the things we might find in our own neighborhoods. We have some great ideas!
We continue to do lots of Guided Reading. We are becoming such great readers and we love being able to read on our own!
