The Perfect Nest by Catherine Friend is a FABULOUS book!
I wrote this Book Study to cover these skills:
* identifying characters and dialogue
* story sequence
* vocabulary development
* text-to-self writing
* adjectives and verbs
* a fun science connection
The story is great for beginning the year and discussions about how to make your classroom the "perfect nest". AND....how memorable would it
be to make omelets in class after reading this humorous story!!?
Read the Amazon synopsis.........
Jack the cat is building the perfect nest. It's bound to attract the perfect chicken, who will lay the perfect egg, which will make the perfect omelet. And sure enough, a chicken shows up ("Â¡Caramba!"), but so do a duck ("SacrÃ© bleu!") and a goose ("Great balls of fire!"). Feathers get ruffled - and Jack gets much more than breakfast - in a funny tale rich in detail with a sweet final twist.
Thank you so much for looking and for your business! I appreciate your feedback.
