One of the skills we have been working on is making connections. (Not just the virtual kind!) The students make a connection (or find a similarity) between what they have heard or read in a book and an event, feeling, character etc. in their own lives.
Recently we read the book The Berenstain Bears and the Sitter. The students all felt some kind of connection to this book and have shared this connection with you through a picture and recording on their blog.
