This week, our grades 1-5 classes will begin learning about the history of comics. We did a brief introduction to comics and graphic novels in November that included vocabulary used when talking about this format. This time around, we will look at where comics started – comics strips in newspapers and the Golden Age of comics, which includes the first appearances of superheroes.

Kindergarten will get a look at a few more books from our Monarch list. Next week, they will be voting for their favorite of the books we have been reading since September!
