I found this great new book at my local library and just had to share. It's called "Shark vs. Train" by Chris Barton.
In this book, a shark and a train go against each other in various challenges. All the kids loved this book, especially the boys. They have asked me to read it everyday. Last week, I was teaching judgments so I had the kids design their own challenges for the shark and the train. Then, they had to write who would win and justify their judgment. This is the first and only time that we have taught judgments this year but, basically, it's just an opinion with a reason. My kiddos came up with some good challenges. I totally forgot to take pictures but I will try to remember tomorrow. My favorite was a thumb wrestling contest that neither the shark or train would win because they don't have thumbs. Too cute!
We are comparing and contrasting this week so this book will come in handy again. Have a great night!
