Today we read a great Cajun version of Little Red Riding Hood called Petite Rouge, by Mike Artell. The book is told with the Cajun dialect, and I really did the best I could! Ask me to tell you how the setting and characters are different than the traditional version. This story has a trick in it too, like other folktales we have read. Ask me to tell you who got tricked, and how!
We also practiced writing words with long vowels in them that end with silent e. We read a poem about a crocodile. We learned several things you should never do to a crocodile, even if it looks like they are smiling!
Have a nice evening!
