Stretching a Moment with Ivy and Bean
I started reading Ivy and Bean: What's the Big Idea with my second grade class today. As I was reading the first scene with Bean watching an ant hole, I thought "This is a great example of stretching a moment." Our class stopped to talk about how Annie Barrows takes that small piece of time and uses detail to stretch it out and draw you in. Check it out if you work on this writing skill.
