Book Nook Nibbles are what we call our mentor text literacy activities in my grade 3 class.
Although we read a class chapter text each term and explore it in depth and in great detail, we also like to dip into shorter picture book texts in our literacy centers and literature circle time. Book Nook Nibbles allow us to pick and choose activities.
Christmas Tapestry, written by Patricia Polacco, is a beautiful story about a church that needs repairing, a young boy who finds a special tapestry and an elderly couple who are reunited because of these things.
It's a great story to discuss both Christmas and Hanukkah and the miracle of these special holidays.
