With Ms. Faith
For our first story in Reading Group, the kindergartners listened to Cornelius. Cornelius is a crocodile who walks upright. The other crocodiles don’t seem to care about his talent. He ends up meeting a monkey who teaches him how to stand on his head and hang from his tale. After showing his new talents, the other crocodiles end up trying to stand on their heads and hang from their tales too.
The kindergartners listened to the story, participated in discussions, wrote responses to prompts regarding the story, and shared what talent they are proud of. The last activity was to evaluate how well they listened during the story and while others where sharing their ideas. They even made a goal to listen and follow along with the story better the next time.
The students are sharing what they think Cornelius is thinking when he walks proudly back to the riverbeach.
