Throughout the  story, students have learned to analyze author’s craft and identify character development using a story mountain. On Friday, we had a celebration to mark the end of our reading unit, this included watching the movie, eating littmus lozenges, egg salad sandwiches, and having dump punch. We also wrote out our personal mistakes and hung them up on our 3rd grade mistake tree located in the 3/4 hallway.
