Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.
This week in class, we’re reading "The House Dog and The Wolf" by Gail Terp.
"The House Dog and the Wolf" follows a traditional fable structure. It is a great introduction to the themes of freedom and comfort and the inherent tension between them.
As we read, we will be discussing the theme of Justice, Freedom & Equality as it relates to the text. We are trying to answer this big question :
"Which is more important: freedom or security?"
Ways to support your child:
- Ask your child about this fable at home:
- What was "The House Dog and The Wolf" About
- What did you learn about?
- Watch Video: The House Dog and The Wolf - A Claymation Student Project at home with your child.
