My new student, Nu, had a special request that I don’t mind filling. Last week I read them The Hungry Thing, all the while preparing them for the sequels, The Hungry Thing Returns, and The Hungry Thing Goes to a Restaurant.
The books teach rhyming and it’s interactive. It’s the perfect little book for my class. They love it. Apparently Nu really liked it too because as I was asking the students which book they wanted me to read, he asked for the sequel to The Hungry Thing.
Just two weeks ago when he first came into my class, he wouldn’t sit down. The second day he disrupted to class so much, security had to escort him out of the room, and he’s only 7 years old. Now only two weeks later he is requesting a story. I love it, love it, love it.
Here’s to continued success!
