My Dog Truffle

Our first grade class has been learning about our five senses. We have written poems about fall and winter using our five senses. We have shared many read-aloud winter books including some about our senses. Recently, we read My Dog Truffle by Lynn Reiser. This is a flip book of how Truffle sees winter through his eyes, nose, tongue, ears and paws. We then went to Kidspiration and using the Explore With Senses activity, picked out a winter picture and wrote about all of our senses. Most of our class loves their hot chocolate!
