The Big Umbrella bulletin board display

Erika Griffin, Literacy Coach, visited classrooms to read aloud The Big Umbrella by Amy June Bates, cowritten by Juniper Bates. The book led to conversations about family and belonging. Students created metaphors by considering how objects might represent the idea of a family. Mrs. Caruso’s first grade displayed their work.
