"Tom and the Island of Dinosaurs"
In Literacy, we have been exploring "Tom And The Island Of Dinosaurs" by Ian Beck. We all really like this great story of a far away land and one boys heroic quest to discover its secrets.
We looked at some pictures, watched videos and listened to different sounds to used our five senses and describe a setting. Before we wrote our character description, we hot seated Tom and asked him open questions about his life, personality and all the adventures.
