Students spent the week reading the book, then used these retelling cards to recount the text details.

Here are some sample response pages we have received from fellow teachers using our lesson plans… swoon!

Making Connections

Students worked on making text-to-self connections.

Craft

This is a craft we created to accompany this adorable book.

Poetry

I have shared this video before, but I simply love it, so you are going to see it again.  A few years back, my class created a Chatterpix video to demonstrate their fluency for our Loose Tooth Poem.  Chatterpix is an easy way to add a little MORE fun into your week!

We also have the music and video files for this poem.  You can see those by clicking HERE.

      Hi Nancy,

      I’m sorry, what links are giving you trouble? I checked the free file document (the Dental Health Bingo) and that seems to work fine. You have to enter your name and email in the box to get that file.

        My mistake! From the picture I thought the little critter lessons were the free download ๐Ÿ™‚ sorry!

            Hi Eileen,

            I’m not sure if you figured it out or not. The free file is at the very bottom of the blog post. So scroll to the bottom of the post and enter your information there. Thanks

    I have your week of lessons for The Mitten (loved it- thanks!) and I thought I’d lucked into another big freebie. Now I see that it’s a part of your February guiding readers. I bought the Aug/Sept unit to use in my learning centre after I used the Mitten unit, I love how Teacher friendly they are. ๐Ÿ™‚
