Fun with Chris P. Bacon

Posted in first grade, nonfiction lesson, and picture book lesson

Last week in the Jackson Library, first grade had fun reading a nonfiction book about the cutest pig ever, Chris P. Bacon! The true story of Chris P. Bacon explains how this pig born without back legs was rescued by a kind veterinarian. We read the book Dr. Len wrote himself and learned how he designed a wheelchair for the pig using K’Nex toys. Chris P. Bacon inspired us by showing us that it is good to be ‘unique’!

Pierre the Penguin: Narrative Nonfiction for Kindergarten

Posted in kindergarten, and nonfiction lesson

Today in the Jackson Library, kindergarteners enjoyed a narrative nonfiction story about a penguin with a problem. Since Pierre the Penguin is an adorable rhyming book that tells how a scientist helped a penguin solve a problem, I used this book to teach story elements. Then the kids created their own neoprene suit for Pierre like the one Pam made in the book. We did a penguin dance after check out!
