First Grade Readers at Horizon

First graders holding their bookMiss Sauer’s class at Horizon wanted to learn more after reading Wolford the Bunny by Ame Dyckman. They loved the book so much then couldn’t just put it on the shelf and forget it. So they decided to write a song about the book. They even tweeted the song to the author and she tweeted back! It was a such treat for the students to hear directly from Ms. Dyckman. She even sent them a package full of literacy goodies.

This experience drove the students to want to read more, especially more books from the author they can say they “know.” They will be able to expand their literacy skills by comparing and contrasting the adventures and experiences of all of her characters.
