Love this!!! What did you make the cape out of? This would fit in very well with what my teachers are doing.
Butcher paper. Total freehand cut several out at a time. I'll let you know if it works out. (Or if the teachers hate me because the kids are wound up the rest of the day.) I'm always nervous trying new stuff. But I get bored doing the old stuff over and over, too, you know? ;] Story doesn't really have anything to do with choosing a book other than the dog works hard and practices. Hopefully that will be OK. Will also have to editorialize a bit because it's kind of long for the time we'll have. So we'll see.I didn't make up the cape idea. Just adapted it for the library from here. http://shenanigansinsecond.blogspot.com/2012/08/heroic-readers-establishing.html
I can't wait to hear how it goes. Thanks for sharing the idea. How many capes did you have to cut out?
Cute idea! Have you ever read the book "The best book to read" by Debbie Bertram, might be better for 1st grade than 2nd but a fun book.
How you inspire me... thanks!
