WAL to make connections between the real world and a text.
Room 20 has been reading the book, called Bridge to ¨Terabithia¨
In the story, it was raining really hard and the creek was swollen and flooded. Yesterday it was pouring here as well. So we decided to do some authentic learning. We made some raincoats from plastic bags and walked down to see the creek behind our school. We could see the water flowing fast and the plants that had been flattened.
I thought that I freezing and cold but a cool thing to look at because it gave us a chance to see what it might look like in the book as well.
