The kindergarten class at Word of Life Lutheran School recently read the story, “Over the River.” They did a great job reading all of the repeating sight words and looked for picture clues to help them make predictions about what might happen next. Each animal that crossed the bridge got bigger and bigger. Eventually, just as their drawings show, the big bear didn’t go over the river, but in the river! We had some very accurate predictions based on small clues from the pictures. This was a very fun book for them to read and they loved recalling the facts and details from the story when we were finished.
