Last week we read the story Why the Sun and the Moon Live in the Sky. We also listed to the story being told by an African Story Teller. We talked about how folktales often try to explain or give reason for why things in nature are like they are. This story shared with us that Sun and Moon were forced into the sky when Sea and his friends filled up their tiny house with water after being invited in. I want you to CREATE (exercise your brain) your own story for why Sun and Moon live in the sky. Be creative... make sure your story has a beginning, middle, and end! I can't wait to read them!
Here your child will have an opportunity to respond to a story that we read in class. This is a great way to get your child thinking about text & building his/her comprehension! Please encourage them to take part in this activity!
