Great week to read A Birthday Basket for Tia.
Reading Street Unit 6 Week 3
Little Cecilia and her cat Chica plan for a surprise party to celebrate her great-aunt's 90th birthday. While Mama cooks beans and cuts up mangoes and watermelon, Cecilia and Chica put together a birthday basket containing a favorite book, a mixing bowl, a flowerpot, and other objects that represent activities the little girl and her great-aunt like to share. After final preparations, including flowers and a piñata, the musicians arrive; finally Cecilia and her great-aunt dance together. Drawing on the author's experiences in the Mexican American community of El Paso, Texas, this fine story is illustrated by Cecily Lang in a series of simple but striking scenes. A touching story about a very special relationship.
Students are still working on their Birthday Baskets for Mrs. Newell. Will posts pics and paragraphs soon!
Here are a few pages from our 40th Happy B-Day Pack. There are 19 pages in this pack. The activities are aligned to the 2nd grade Math Common Core Standards.
