As you wander through the posts, be sure to jot down each blogger's mystery word. It is the verification you need for the entries in our giveaway. The words will be BLUE, so hopefully you won't miss them.
This story lends itself to a sequencing activity or five.
Beginning, Middle, End
Students can use the three-piece puzzle to create the beginning, middle, and end of the story. The three-piece puzzle can be divided into a six-piece puzzle, if you would like. When students are illustrating, don't forget the scarf.
Students can make an anchor chart for transition words. The anchor chart in the picture below was on Pinterest, but the pin didn't lead to anyone's blog. If I knew who to credit, I would. Students can retell the story with the help of the anchor chart. Students can complete the sort independently or as a group. As a follow-up activity, ask the students to write a summary of the story using new transition words.
I love paint chips. You know I do. (If you want more details about how to use paint chips in your classroom.) This is a new idea: sequencing. Put the transition words on the paint chips for help when students are retelling. They can also be used as a group activity, by passing the paint chip for the next student to tell the next thing in a story.
Sequencing Spinner Game
This is perfect for a small group retell of a story. Using a paper clip and a pencil, students will spin the spinner and tell the part of the story they land on. If they land on the "then" space more than once, they an tell a new details about the middle of the story.
