When we read the first few chapters of the Not Perfect Hat Club, one of the most surprising elements to the students was that the story is being told from the perspective of a dog, Sir Isaac Newton, who everyone calls Newton. With Newton as the narrator, a lot of simple everyday events look and appear different to the reader. This idea of using perspective and voice is something that we have been trying to include in our writing this year.
Other student reactions included some indignation that a dog would be dropped off at a shelter just because he wasn't winning dog shows, and a lot of curiosity around Jabber and Kylee "The Snowflake Kids" who were coming to visit with Carl and Newton.
Let's see what Newton is going to discover this week!
