I am really looking forward to getting into the swing of things this week. Tomorrow, we’ll be reading one of my favorite books of all-time, Wemberly Worried. This is such a wonderful book to read at the beginning of the school year. I just LOVE Kevin Henkes’ writing style, especially when I can read it to bright eyed first graders. Too precious! You can read the book here:
We are really going to be focusing in on Wemberly’s character traits (her actions, words, and feelings). I made these visuals to help my students better understand what a character trait is. These posters can be used for other stories, as well.
We’ll be using this little bubble map I made to help us identify some words that describe her character.
On Wednesday, we’ll be revisiting Wemberly Worried using this organizer to retell the beginning, middle, and end of the story. We’ll also be reading all about another Kevin Henkes friend: Chrysanthemum. We’ll be comparing/contrasting Wemberly and Chrysanthemum using a Venn-Diagram. LOVE!
