Here are some you may want to explore:
In the book Whoever You Are, Mem celebrates how much we are alike on the inside even though our lives on the outside may be very different. In class, we created a class book illustrating some of the many things that are the same. Here is Jack's:
We learned a little about Mem's birthplace and current home, Australia. That book of hers that was rejected over and over was titled Hush the Invisible Mouse. She later renamed it Possum Magic and it was the inspiration for our study of Australia. We looked at Australia on the globe, decorated a map of the country, and colored the flag. Of course, we had to try some Australian food. We tasted vegemite on some water crackers. It is an acquired taste. I think it’s yummy but most of the kids weren’t huge fans. Here is Leah tasting this snack from down under.
Hattie and the Fox was the perfect book to brush up on our acting skills. We enjoyed reading the book, acting it out, singing it, and creating a pull-through to practice retelling it. Here is a photo of some of our barnyard friends. Look for a video of the performance soon.
