Gilliatte room 5 has been engrossed in bookmaking all school year, in addition to our projects and investigations. A couple of weeks ago we began an author study of Dr. Seuss, and we hope to continue this author study through the end of the school year. Each week we have read one of Dr. Seuss's books and then the children have had the opportunity to make their own books. So far, we have read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish; Hop on Pop; and The Cat in the Hat. The children have thoroughly enjoyed these books and have recognized that Dr. Seuss made up some words and characters in his books. They have also recognized that Dr. Seuss used a lot of rhyming words and opposite words in his books.
