We read the book “A Piece of Chalk” by Jennifer Ericsson. I wasn’t familiar with this book, but really enjoyed it. It is about a girl who spends a lot of time making an elaborate chalk drawing in the driveway only to have it washed away by the rain. There is a silver lining in the end with a rainbow along with a rainbow of colors left on the driveway. I think it really helped Will understand that sidewalk chalk drawings are only temporary.
Of course for our project we had to go out in the driveway and play with sidewalk chalk! I loved how Will wanted to make his drawing just like the girl in the book. It was a Mother-Son teamwork drawing.
