Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs

Posted in fourth grade, picture book lesson, reading skills, and TTESS 1819

Last week in the Jackson Library, fourth graders used context clues and dictionary excerpts to determine the meaning of unknown words in Mo Willems’ Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs book. During the story, we analyzed Goldi’s character traits based on her actions and dialogue. After reading the book, the kids folded an origami storyteller to continue having fun with the storyline.

Toni Simmons Visits Jackson!

Posted in fun events

Storyteller Toni Simmons visited Jackson Elementary last week and we all had so much fun! She told different stories to each assembly: kindergarten, fifth grade, third and fourth grade, and second and third grade. We heard Abiyoyo’s songs, Pedro’s trickster tale, a caps for sale tale, and we learned why dogs chase cats. Fun!
