One things that I (Ms. Chown) am noticing is that everyone in our class is really excited about stories. Sharing stories together is a really important part of the day. Here are a few things that students wrote about the story we read today.
A month later Eggbert was travelling the world, seeing cracked, famous sites like the Grand Canyon. He realized that he never had to feel bad about being cracked. In fact he felt a little proud. And I feel like the story is saying: be proud of who you are. (Nora)
My feelings about Eggbert are... That I think it was mean that people in the fridge are mean because they kicked him out just because he had a crack on his head. But I liked that he was trying to paint himself to blend in. (Garrett).
One thing I enjoy the most are the stories. I think they are unique, funny stories. Today we read Eggbert the Slightly Cracked Egg. It was a great book. I felt calm and relaxed when we read it. (Sara)
Today we read Eggbert the Slightly Cracked Egg. It was a very funny book and it was about an egg who likes to paint but one day he has a crack so he has to leave the fridge. This book teaches you a lot about the fact that there are a lot of cracks in the world as Eggbert travels the world and finds favorite cracks to look at. (Tanner)
When we got to the corner we talked about why we had chosen the book and guess what? Everyone had different reasons. I like it because it was funny! A baby in Space! HAHAHA, hilarious, loved it. Love that book! Ooops, the music is speeding up, got to go (Note from Ms. Chown: we listen to relaxing music when we write in our journals. When the music speeds up, we know that it is time to finish).
