Making connections - big and small - with Little Elliot

We are very excited! 
Mike Curatothe author of Little Elliot Big City is coming to visit with our first and second graders.

Prior to Mike's visit the first graders drew pictures of the challenges they faced because of their size:
getting cereal from the cupboard

getting dresses from the closet

buying ice cream at the store

turning on the light in the closet

turning on the water at the sink

getting the candy from the counter

They also drew pictures of ways they helped someone else as did Elliot with his friend Mouse.
getting cereal for a younger brother

helping grandma carry groceries

picking apples for a grandmother
