The Giving Tree
Some of the seventh grade students heard The Giving Tree ( by Shel Silverstein) read aloud as an introduction to their case study. This is a children's book about a tree who plays with a little boy. As the boy grows older he takes from the tree without giving back. In the story whenever the boy is happy the tree is happy. The students used meaningful words to create a wordle (see picture). If you haven't read it in a while, or never at all, read it, and I'm sure you will enjoy it!
