Our read-aloud story to help think about small moments was the wonderful book by Margaret Wise Brown, Sneakers the Seaside Cat. It is also a great segue into our next science unit on the five senses. A favorite of this teacher :)
Of course, we got to do some fancying up of an earlier story. Each child decided on and sounded out a title for their fancy pieces! Each time we fancy up a piece, we will add something new. Next time, we may add a front cover, a back cover and some dedications!
