Book Talk

Here’s this week’s book talk!

Additionally, I spoke about Dinosaur National Monument at the end of the video. Here are a few pictures of what the area actually looks like. It’s amazing!

Today, we started reading Ballet for Martha, a narrative nonfiction book illustrated by Brian Floca, who also illustrates Poppy, our current chapter read aloud.

Ballet for Martha is one of the books included in our Mock Caldecott Awards, and it’s pretty magnificent. I’ll review it in tomorrow’s book talk, but today I told our class that I’d upload the full ballet. We watched Part 1 today in class during snack time.
