"BERRY" Good Books: Week 4
Here's the plan. I'll post a new book each week during the summer. The books will have a small FREEBIE and some ideas for sharing these with your students.
Duncan loves a good story. Honestly, who doesn't? But being a dragon makes it harder than you would think. You see, every time Duncan gets excited or scared or shows any emotion he breathes fire. Why would this be a problem? Because books are made of paper and paper and fire are NOT a good combination. SOOOO, he never finishes a book!
This book can have multiple lesson introductions. You may want to let Duncan help with cause and effect. You may choose to let Duncan help you with introducing problem solving to students. You may choose to let Duncan help the children with understanding empathy. Duncan is also a great phonics introduction for the "dreaded" affricates. You know, that "dr" that makes early learners write "chr." Duncan can be a great anchor to a chart on affricates.
This is a sorting FREEBIE. Students can sort pictures for "dr," "tr," and "j." There is also a cute writing paper for students to write on. MAYBE they can even right a letter to Duncan telling them how they could help him finish a book.
Enjoy the book and enjoy the FREEBIE. CLICK HERE or the picture below.
