This year English Class second graders are all reading The Frog and Toad Storybook Treasury written and illustrated by Arnold Lobel. After reading each story in Frog and Toad are Friends, the first book of the three included in the storybook treasury, the second graders have written a journal page for either Frog or Toad. At the end of the spring semester these pages will be bound into a journal.
In a recent English language arts lesson, the second graders took turns sharing their favourite journal entries with one another by reading a page while showing it on the screen to classmates. We also practiced editing skills in the process.
