*** Today we finished our first long read chapter book "Moongobble and Me: The Dragon of Doom". I was amazed about the information retention and recall skills ALL of the children have. This is a BIG pre-literacy skill and everyone passes with gusto! Some prompt question for the ending:

- What was funny about the dragon?
- Who had the acorns?

- What happened to Edward at the very end of the book?
I need to pick up the next book in the series as the children want to go on with the adventure

Yes, it was so exciting hearing all of their comments and questions after you finished the book. Very cool indeed!

Moongobble and stinky cheese. Olivia loves that kind of humor.
