Getting started, what do we notice?

Hi all, it was fantastic to start today having this project to work on and Waitawheta Class at Waikino School can't wait to introduce themselves, they have a cool idea about how so will post when we get there!

We began today by having quite a few of Gavin Bishop's books around and jumping into them, sharing them with each other and chatting about what we noticed.

We talked about some of the things that were the same, some themes we could identify and then we read the Mother Earth and Father Sky retelling from Counting stars.  Once we had read, we had some more ideas and recorded a quick brainstorm of things that we think Gavin Bishop may write about.

Here are our ideas from today which we hope will give us a focus as we continue to share these books.

We look forward to 'meeting' you all soon.
