The First graders at Holy Child love Meli. This is a great series of books about a cute little white dog and her owner Ron. In the book Taking Care of Meli the students learn how every day life goes in taking care of a dog. They also l;earn how much Meli and Ron love each other and how pets can bring simple joy to life. The students did a response to reading and reflected on all that Ron does for Meli. They are getting to be such good writers in remembering all the basics of the writing process including writing from left to right and top to bottom, beginning sentences and names with capitol letters and using punctuation at the end of their sentences. We are some great writers!
