Literature – Dolphin Swimmers

The Dolphin Swimmers read two books by Chris Van Allsburg on Friday: Ben’s Dream & Two Bad Ants.

In Ben’s Dream, Ben’s house floats around the world past many famous landmarks and monuments. We found their approximate locations on a world map, and looked at photographs of the actual landmarks. I was impressed at how many the kids could recognize!
(We borrowed the map from the Sunday School and had to return it when we were finished. If anyone has a world map we can keep, I’d love to create a permanent display for the Literature classroom)

In Two Bad Ants, we looked at everyday things from an ant’s perspective.

There is no homework for Dolphin Swimmers.
