We read the
story Doctor De Soto by William Steig. Children enjoyed
the story, especially the funny ending when Doctor De Soto
tricked the Fox by putting the glue on his teeth. We all loved
the beautiful illustrations. Children discussed the story and
they all agreed that Doctor De Soto was very brave and generous
when he accepted to treat the Fox. He was also very smart and at
the end of the story he tricked the sly Fox and saved his wife�s
and his own life.
and discussing the story we decided to learn more about animals
in the story, mice and foxes, about food chains and about teeth.
For these purposes a web-based research project was created and
designed as a web. Children chose their working partners and
worked on various topics by searching resources on the Internet.
At the end they presented their research findings by using
Kisdpiration and PowerPoint. Children also designed the main
characters in the story by applying collage technique.
