|Front end papers|
And we turn the page again to see the same endpapers we saw at the beginning, the fish who could wish!
Scholastic have a short series of activities which focus on the skill of developing self-awareness through the act of wishing. It's devised for smaller children, but the process of reflecting on what the fish did and talking about it is suitable for older children.
The theme of wishing is an exciting one, especially when the children realise that wishes are limitless and they can have some fun describing and writing about them. Even better when wishes become directed to resolving problems in the world.
