Our class was wild over our two week literacy unit surrounding the Iditarod Sled Dog Race! We challenged our favorite musher by counting each page we read during the race as a mile on our giant map of Alaska. We devoured all kinds of fiction and nonfiction mushing books. We discovered more about nonfiction graphic sources, and we ended every day dancing to “I Did, I Did, I Did the Iditarod Trail.”
I’m black and white.
I run fast with the wind.
I sniff the trail.
I dash up the tall Alaska Range.
I am strong to pull the musher all the way to Nome.
I am a big husky,
And I am the lead dog.
