Skipped week 3. I was doing things.
My district has a new K2 curriculum. I’m cool with it. It’s not all encompassing, and pretty much all of it is practices that I’ve been doing in my classroom already. So I’m responding to implementing much of it a lot better than I’ve responded to any previous curriculums that I’ve been told to use. The first 6-week unit is, ‘Community’, beginning with the sub-theme, “friendship”. They recommend quite a few picture books, on friendship. I use different books on “friendship” other than the recommended list, but a few of them I will use. I will note if the read aloud choice was a suggestion from my district’s new K2 curriculum. If you see a lot of titles with the word ‘Friends’ in my weekly read aloud posts, you now know why.
Here’s what we read last week:
Everett Anderson’s Friend by Lucille Clifton. Illustrated by Ann Grifalconi.
True Friends by John Kilaka
Fresh Fish by John Kilaka
The Book of Mean People By Toni Morrison & Slade Morrison. Illustrated by Pascal Lemaitre
Da Goodie Monsta by Robert Peters
