Ever since these mysterious lilypads appeared in our classroom on a very strange Tuesday, we have been exploring what on earth caused them to be there. 

 

Our book, 'Tuesday' by David Weisner has given us some clues! Through images alone, it tells the story of an army of excitable frogs who go on an unexpected and magical journey... Who knew frogs could be so adventurous?!

 

We created some story maps to help us to order the key events of their crazy adventure...
