New Read Aloud || Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo

We have a reading goal. We want to read, as a whole group (read alouds) 30 books before spring break! After Christmas we decided to set a goal and track it using When we finish a book we rate it and write a review. You can see our reviews over there --> along the side of our blog. We finished a chapter book last week so this week we spent some time reading picture books we were interested in. Now it is time to start another chapter book. In the past, grade 2's have enjoyed hearing other books by Kate DiCamillo so we are going to give this one a try. Before we started we watched this book trailer:

Stay tuned to hear what we think of it!

Stop Motion!

Today Matea made this stop motion video! I have a feeling once we share this there will be a few other eager little ones at my door! Great job, Matea!

When I got home and was finalizing the video to post, my kids were watching with me. Emily is 3.5 and Oliver is almost 2. They wanted to keep watching it over and over. I suggested we make our own video just like the Lego one. So we did! This is Emily's stop motion:

And Oliver's:
