Great reading lesson, activity, AND culture builder for the beginning of the year.
After each student makes a fish, use the fish to create one larger fish on the bulletin board.
CCSS aligned with smart objectives!

-What kind of character is Swimmy and how do we know?
-What does cooperation look like, feel like, and sound like in our classroom?
SWBAT orally answer questions, using evidence and background knowledge, about Swimmy the fish.
