We will be participating in Jenuinetech’s awesome Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs project. This will involve reading the book to your class. I went to the library and was nervous that the book had already been taken out but then, she found it! Phew! However, I found someone reading it online to his niece here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olO73t4kf9E so that’s a good alternative if you can’t get your hands on the book.
Next, I set out to find the trailer. Due to bandwidth issues and the fact that the trailer was pretty well buried on the site, it took me just a few minutes to realize that this would never work. It was so choppy that I could not follow the story. Then I remembered youtube. Sure enough, a couple of versions of the trailer are available. I will use this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OP9wtdwgeok
For our discussion, we will use this pdf: Worksheet and others that Jen Wagner has created especially for this project. Looking forward to the weather report Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs!
