That Big and Friendly Giant

Another read aloud is complete! The class loved Roald Dahl's adventure, The BFG.  As a reminder, I like to show the movie to the class for comparing and contrasting purposes.  We will be watching The BFG, which is rated G.  Also as a reminder, we do NOT watch the whole movie in one day.  I simply replace the 15 minutes of read aloud time with 15 minutes of the movie.  It usually takes about a week and a half to finish the movie, and we compare and contrast daily along the way.  I understand that some of you may not want your child to participate in this activity.  If that is the case, please let me know and I can create an alternate assignment for them.
