Lillys Purple Plastic Purse Lesson Plans
We love pretty much every book Kevin Henkes has ever written and Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse is right up there with the best of them.
With our reading comprehension units, we visit and revisit a text for the entire week. Each day, students respond to the text through partner discussions. Then, we ask students to make their thinking visible through a response to the literature activity. We know time is limited, so many teachers opt to have students respond in writing just a few times a week. However, the key… the juice… the point of an interactive read aloud is the dicussions that take place as students orally respond to literature prompts.
Let’s take a minute to pause and appreciate the invented spelling. It is through these approximations that students grow as a writer. Do we have times of the day where we teach spelling patterns, phonics, and the skills of encoding and decoding words? Yes! Absolutely! You can see that takes place during our Science of Reading block.
Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse: Retelling
With each of our lesson plans, we include a retelling activity or an activity that focuses on text details.
We might as well make Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse a place to display our retelling lesson!

We love a good craft or two! We try to include engaging crafts to our lesson plans becaue they are the hook! You can also add he sentence study that is included in the printable version to the craft. This sweet Lilly is a keeper!
Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse: Video
We also love giving students a different example of reading fluency. Through out the week, you will be reading from the book, but once or twice a week, we like to include a recorded version such as this one.
