100 Bugs! A Counting Book by Kate Narita

Hi Readers,

My friend Kate Narita is the author of 100 Bugs! A Counting Book, and she is also a fourth-grade teacher. I loved Kate’s book so much that I wanted to share it with kids. Now, Kate wants to share her book with all of you.  Thanks, Kate. To hear Kate read aloud her book, please ask your teacher or someone from your school to email Kate Narita at  katenarita227ATgmailDOTcom. She will give you the FlipGrid link and password.

Before school closed, the kids in Ms. Robek’s class in Ohio and Ms. Flynn’s in Massachusetts class read 100 Bugs! A Counting Book. Then these students introduced themselves to each other on FlipGrid.

These second graders shared what they learned from reading 100 Bugs! A Counting Book with each other.

Here are a few of the facts they learned:

Jett, Daniel and Natalija – Katydids have ears on their legs.

Tatum – A candy-striped leaf hopper can run sideways.

Mahika – Common sneeze weed has toxic and bitter leaves.

Daniel – Female Pennsylvania fireflies eat male fireflies.

Aarav – Baby walking sticks can regrow their legs if they break off but adult walking sticks can’t.

The students worked in groups and explained why other kids should read 100 Bugs!

Now the kids had questions for Kate.

Do you know what happened?  Kate responded to EVERY student.  Thanks, Kate! 

Happy Reading Everyone!
