Read-Aloud Activity at Stapleton Inspires Discussion on Determination and Friendship

Today Mrs. Maurao made rounds through several Stapleton classrooms, reading 'Ricky, the Rock that Could't Roll' by Jay Miletsky and illustrated by Erin Wozniak. This read-aloud activity was accompanied by lessons on morals, perseverance, and friendship. The kids were engaged and enjoyed having a special guest reader!
 
About the book: Get ready to meet a new rock group! From zippy, little pebbles to big strong boulders, the rocks (and their ladybug friend) get together to play and roll around their favorite hill, only to find that one of their friends, Ricky, can't roll with them. Unlike all of the others, who are all round, Ricky can't roll because he's flat on one side. Determined not to leave their friend behind, the rocks and the ladybug set out to help Ricky roll around - one way or another.
