In this program, Miss Changkit’s kindergarten class read Sergio Makes a Splash! and Sergio Saves the Game! by Edel Rodriguez. They learned about overcoming challenges through persistence, then worked with Edel over two sessions to talk about their favorite parts of his books and ask him questions. He also showed the students how to make a book using plain paper by folding several sheets in half and then stapling them in the middle. The students were inspired after working with Edel and created their own short stories about animal characters facing and overcoming challenges.
They created individual books, but we were only able to publish excerpts in an anthology. Luckily, we have the original pieces on hand and will be publishing a new one each day for you all to enjoy!
