The 21 Balloons

We are about to begin reading The 21 Balloons by William Pene du Bois, and we used the thinking routine "See, Think Wonder" yesterday to begin our discussion of the book. After looking at the collage above, we talked about what we saw, thought and wondered about the images. There was a hot air balloon, computer, a map, a volcano, and a diamond mine. As we looked for connections and made predictions, we realized this is probably a book full of adventure! We look forward to sharing what we learn about this fantastic book.

This book has taught me a lot. Porfessor Sherman has taught me a lot about hot air balloons. He is a quick thinker and is willing to take risks.
