TD for the Week of 10-25

 KTD will be talking about the idea of being "perfect" and what that even means. The kids and I will be reading two picture books and using the ideas to make a few projects based on the inspiration in the stories. On Friday, we will be making Monster Traps inspired by a book by the same name.

1TD will spend the week reading a Hindu folktale called "The Mouse and the Wizard." The kids and I will discuss how the story reflects the culture it came from, and if we have time, we will also be making monster traps on Friday!
2TD will be visiting the LMC this week to find a new book by the author of Frindle. After we discuss the end of the book, the letter that Nick waited 10 years to open, and what was going on inside of Mrs. Granger's head the whole time, the kids will work on finishing their character maps showing how the two main characters changed from the beginning of the novel to the end. Andrew Clements has written many engaging chapter books that are perfect for these second graders. The kids will be checking out a book of their choice to use in TD for the next two weeks.
