1st Graders Study The Boxcar Children

While reading the book The Boxcar Children by Gertrude Chandler Warner, Mrs. Ball’s reading group enjoyed a variety of activities that included making a diorama of their favorite part in The Boxcar Children.  It wasn’t all work and no play though.  As the class read through the chapters of the book they were treated to some of the food that Henry, Jessie, Violet and Benny ate along the way.  The treats included bread & butter, blueberries & cream, cookies and cherries. Students were very excited with the ending of the book that allowed the children to go live with their grandfather.
