As a class we together read a book called ‘Pink and Say’ by Patricia Polacco.
After we read it we thought of some text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world connections. Over the weekend I, Yieun, heard a song called Wavin’ Flag by K’naan. I thought the music sounded a lot like the book, for instance I thought when it says “give me freedom,” it sounded like give me freedom from slavery. I also thought the instruments matched the theme of the book. Also the part where it sings “just like a wavin’ flag,” and on International Day we learned about the American flag when it was on war and thought all three were connected.
In class we all listened to the song and shared connections we made. Listen to the song and see if you realize the same too.
