Book Vacations (Rising 1st) – Day 5

Dear Parents,

Today we continued our activities with the book, Jumanji.  Yesterday, we made two different versions of the Jumanji game from notes and close study of the book.  Today we got to play the game.  It was so much fun!

Other highlights include:

  • We were Character Detectives and explored the character s of Peter and Judy and how we came to know them through the story.  We took notes about their words and actions and how others related to them.  We wrote in our journals about whether or not we would like to be friends with them.
  • We shared our journal entries with the class in the Writer’s Chair.
  • We thought about game boards that we might like to design.  We came up with ideas, figured out ways to make our own game boards fun, and started creating our own games.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
