Hello all! I'm linking up with the Cuties again! This week's topic is language arts.
My book choice is VOICES IN THE PARK by Anthony Browne.
It is an absolute perfect choice for teaching Point of View and Character Traits. There are 4 very distinct "voices". A little boy, his mother, a little girl, and her father and also the dogs.
Each voice tells a story about a day in the park. All four voices are in the park at the exact same time, but all have completely different perspectives of the days events. This book is excellent for character traits, as the different points of view lend themselves to different analysis of the characters! It was a hit in my room! I had the kids list the traits they felt described each character and their point of view. Many kids had connections to similar park experiences they have had.
