On March 21st, we were lucky enough to have some furry visitors come to Wescott.  We were able to see a skunk, porcupine, coyote, and wolf.  We learned a lot about these animals as well.  What was your favorite part of the assembly?  What did you learn?

Clever Jack Takes the Cake

Ms Lenger read you the following story:  Clever Jack Takes the Cake written by:  Candace Fleming and illustrated by: G. Brian Karas.

It is a story about a poor boy named Jack who struggles to deliver a birthday present worthy of the princess.

In the story, Clever Jack Takes the Cake, Jack did not have money to buy a birthday gift for the princess. He traded what little he had for ingredients to make her a birthday cake. Unfortunately, as Jack traveled to the castle for the royal birthday party the cake was eaten by blackbirds, a troll, a dancing bear and a castle guard. Nothing was left of the cake when it was Jack’s turn to give his gift. Instead, Jack told the princess the story about what happened to the cake and “a story” turned out to be her favorite gift!

  • What would you do if you wanted to give someone a gift but you did not have money to buy one?
  • Who would you like to give a gift to and what would it be?
  • Are there other gifts you would like to give?

We have been continuing to use the atlas and are becoming more familiar with cities, states, countries, and continents.  If you could visit any place in the world where would it be and why?  What would you like to find out about that location?  What kind of questions could you ask someone from there?
