Hair Love Book Ideas
Hair Love is a sweet story written by Matthew Cherry. It is about a little girl who loves her hair, although it can have a mind of its own sometimes. Her dad is determined to help her get ready for a very special day. This book is a wonderful addition to your classroom library. Take a look at the read aloud on YouTube:
There is also this Oscar-winning, short film that would be great to add to your week-long book study. Warning: This may pull at your heartstrings a little!
The book unit for this story comes with four reading comprehension response pages, 3 ELA activities, 3 math activities, a sentence work activity, and even a parent letter if you are sending this unit home for distance learning!
As you can see above on the printed response activities, we’ve added QR codes for recorded directions. This can support distance learning at home or provide an extra level of independence for in-class activities.
All of the activities included in this book unit are also available in a digital format for use in Seesaw or as a Google PowerPoint.
Your students will love watching and listening to this sweet story.
I am always a fan of having students read and respond to authentic literature. This book unit allows your kindergarten and first-grade students to do just that.
Plus, ELA and math activities too!
