"BERRY" Good Books: Week 5
The Duck Says is a duck who talks all the time. He talks to everyone and everything (even the boulders in the pond). He talks like a pirate. He talks to the animals. He talks to warm the animals and he talks and talks and talks.
The Duck Says is an obvious introduction to speech bubbles. Students will love using the duck as the springboard to writing about what characters are saying. BUT, it's also a great introduction to cause and effect. If you get on a horse, you just might be in for the ride of your life. If you knock down a beehive...you'll need to run for your life. It is also a great lesson for exclamation points and ellipses. The duck uses both to tell the story.
Read the book in it's entirety. THEN, read it a second time by just reading the speech bubbles. This is a speech bubble FREEBIE. Students can use the provided pictures to tell a story in the speech bubbles.
Enjoy the book and enjoy the FREEBIE. CLICK HERE or the picture below.
