Ezra Jack Keats Peter’s Chair lesson ideas: Reading and Responding to Text

As with all of our Engaging Readers units, we focus on various comprehension strategies all week.

Retelling

I love how this teacher decided to put the retelling cards under her document camera!  What an easy way to make the images visible to all of the students as they go about sequencing the cards.

Once all of the cards are in order and the students have had an opportunity to practice retelling the story to their partner, they then use black and white images to create their individual retelling of Peter’s Chair.  This can be done in their student notebook… or… students can make this cute suitcase and add the retelling piece to it.Ezra Jack Keats Peter's Chair Lesson ideas for kindergarten and first grade includes reading, writing, retelling, a craft, STEM, and more!

This is what the cover looks like.  It is pretty simple to make and the template for the handles are in the Engaging Readers units.

We also encourage you to add the sentence study to the cover!

Opinion Writing

In general, we include an opinion writing piece every Friday in our Engaging Readers.   This gives students an authentic reason to write while practicing this very important skill.
