Making Connections in our Reading
On Friday we read a book by Mem Fox called Wilfred Gordan McDonald Partrige. It was a beautiful story that spoke of the relationship between a young boy and an older woman from a nursing home that was losing her memory. Wilfred Gordan was able to find a way to help the lady remember some memories from her childhood. Students did a great job afterwards making connections between the two sets of memories during an oral retelling of the story.
This is the second book that we have read from this famous Australian author and we look forward to reading more of her work.
