Wordless Picture Book

Hi Teacher Friends!  We have two days of kindergarten completed.  Woo Hoo! 

Today we were discussing the different ways we can read a book.  We focused on reading the pictures to gain meaning.  Our librarian recommended the book Chalk by Bill Thomson.  It is perfect for practicing this skill.  The illustrations are wonderful.  On each page the kids were able to gain so much meaning from the pictures.  Without giving to much away, this story is about three friends who are going to the park on a rainy day.  They find a bag of sidewalk chalk and then their imaginations soar.  Be sure to check it out for your lessons.

I was unfamiliar with this book and am so glad our librarian shared it.  Let me tell you, my kinderkids LOVED it!  We read it twice today and they were asking for me to read it again.  I know we will be reading it again tomorrow. 
To our teacher friends in the path of Isaac, we pray that God protects and keeps you all safe from harm.
