For this book, student practice:

  • making predictions
  • recalling text details/retell
  • character study/connections
  • comparing/contrast
  • opinion writing.

Here is the chart that goes with the comparison.  Students are to compare the Kevin Henkes character of Lily to Chrysanthemum.  You can grab the Lilly lessons for FREE by going to THIS blog post.

Sentence Study

Students also complete this fun craft as part of their sentence study.  At the beginning of the year, most of the conversation centers around concepts about print (what are letters, words, spaces, punctuation…).

    Love Kevin Henkes! Thanks for the freebie! A question for you Deedee- When do you do explicit phonics instruction? I have your Guiding Readers Bundle and know that it is in that program. But as I am looking at your Peek at My Week plans I am wondering if you do the phonics during the Reading/Interactive writing block? Just trying to pack in all your wonderful programs into my schedule! I don’t want to leave any of it out!!
