Jump by Scott M. Fischer

Great book. Lots of repetitive, rhyming fun. But, I missed the mark in terms of it being a HIT with my Grade 1/2’s transition back-to-school. Maybe I’d been away from face-to-face teaching for too long. Maybe my students forgot how to play (highly unlikely). Likely, I ‘temporarily‘ forgot what 5-7 year olds like.

Jump was super fun for the few who took advantage and jumped around as we read it outdoors and the pictures were a delight for all. At the end of the story, students loved suggesting ideas of more things that might chase away the final creature; the whale, in order to make it “jump“.

I’ll be bringing this one home to stay. My almost three year old will enjoy it, I’m sure.

Reading reflectively,
