A New Book!

Today in first grade, we published a new class book, Today I Had the Blues...
First, we read Yesterday I Had the Blues by Jeron Ashford Frame. (If you click on the title, you can hear the book read aloud!) The first time we read it, it was a little confusing! But after reading it again and talking about the book, we realized that the author was actually talking about feelings! We talked about what it means to feel "blue," and what kind of things make us feel like that. We even talked about what "purple," orange," and "red" might feel like, and that different colors might feel different for different people!

We talked about how this book is like a poem almost,  that when you read it, you can really hear the author's voice. Then, we all tried it on our own! Everyone was so creative, and our book turned out awesome.

Watch the video version of our class book below, or check it out in our classroom library! Thanks for reading!
