SEA ME READ: Alfie: (The Turtle That Disappeared)

from Mote Marine Laboratory - SEA Trek

Program image

The night before Nia's seventh birthday, her turtle Alfie disappears. Where did he go? Go on an adventure and discover the friendship between a girl and her turtle—from both points of view. A warm and funny story that celebrates friendship through the seasons, even when those friends see the world very differently.

We read this SEL-supportive, fictional story aloud with your students and then engage in a learning segment that helps build critical thinking skills, promote oral language skills, fluency, pronunciation, STEM engagement, and reading comprehension.

Our thanks to ABRAMS books and Thyra Heder for making this program possible.
