Loving Language Arts – June 25, 2016

We were thrilled to have 70% of our families join us for this family engagement activity. Two sessions were held with a different folk tale being presented in each. After learning about the elements of folktales, the first group read the story of Anansi the spider. Afterward families discussed the problems tackled in the story and the lessons it was meant to teach. Families worked together to design a spider using paper plates, pipe cleaners and other media. Their individual interpretations of the story were written on the back of the paper plate spider. The second session found families analyzing the story Stone Soup. After a discussion of story elements they designed a flip book where students wrote the story elements. Each student got to take home the book following the activity.
