Our class started the novel When Santa Fell to Earth by Cornelia Funke this week. While we may only be a few chapters in, I can already tell this book is going to be a huge hit with our class! Thank you to Sloane and Mya for writing excellent “Reader’s Response” paragraphs after listening yesterday. Here is a little sampling of what they each had to say…
When Santa Fell to Earth
We are reading When Santa Fell To Earth it is a great book so far. We are using a strategy called visualize it is an awesome strategy. The characters in this story are Nicholas Goodfellow, Ben, Will, Dean the two angels and the elfs. This story takes place when Nicholas Goodfellow was pretty young. I would recommend this to lots of other grade threes and fours.
