Learning from Picture Books

In this story we decided that the author wanted to tell us that people (or mice) who look and think and dream can help us as much as the ones who do other jobs.
Frederick helped the family of mice get through the long cold winter because he reminded them of the warmth and colours of the summer and created a beautiful poem to share with them. These were his supplies.
Here are the collage pictures we created after looking at Leo Lionni's beautiful work.
This was a good way to use the paintings we made earlier in the term.

Hi Room 2
What great collages you have created. We have made collages before and we know how tricky they are. We will have to read that picture book.

Wow, I really love the collages that you made from one of my favorite books. Do you guys happen to Skype? I would love to feature you on my blog showing your work and then follow it by reading the book to your class.

Hi Skyping Reading Tutor,
We can Skype but we haven't done it much yet. We could try to work something out.

Hi room 2. I thought your pictures were amazing! You must have worked very hard to create them.
