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. 

Here is the publisher’s synopsis of the book.Lilly loves all sorts of things. She loves school, she loves dressing up, and she even grows to love her stinky baby brother, Julius. In fact, Lilly loves everything! But when Lilly brings her purple purse to school and can’t wait until sharing time to show off the purse and her movie star sunglasses, her teacher, Mr. Slinger, has to take away her prized possessions.

Lilly’s fury leads her to draw a mean note and picture of her favorite teacher. It isn’t until Mr. Slinger gives her belongings back to her at the end of the day with a kind note and snacks that Lilly realizes she owes Mr. Slinger an apology.

Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse is such a great book for kindergarten and first grade. This book by Kevin Henkes gives you an opportunity to reinforce classroom expectations and classroom rules while falling in love with Lilly We see this main character in his story book companion like Chester’s Way and Julius, Baby of the World.

Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse Activity: Student Responses

With our reading comprehension units, we visit and revisit a text for the entire week. Each day, our young learners 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 discussions 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 focus on different comprehension strategies. We also introduce new vocabulary and deepen our comprehension with discussion topics. Here is the retelling activity where we focus on text details.

    1. If you scroll to the bottom of the blog post, the instructions are there for you. You just need to fill out the box.

        1. If you read down to the bottom of the blog post, it will show you where to add your name and the download will be coming your way. πŸ˜‰

    1. Hi there, I am sorry… that is how my document/email server is set up. Rest assured, when you sign up, you will only be on my email list once. So you won’t get 25 duplicate emails from me (because nobody likes that for SURE).

      Sadly, I have had free files taken from me and posted without my permission, so this aids my site security.

  1. Hi, I am interested in receiving your free unit on Lily’s Purple Plastic Purse! It looks awesome!
    Thank you!
    Leah

  2. Any tips on teaching Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse with these resources to higher 1st graders and 2nd graders? Thank you!!!

    1. Hi there!!! and YES! We have so many first grade teachers who use our resources. The questioning and comprehension strategies remain the same throughout students who read. For example: predicting, connecting, inferring, and opinion writing. So how do you make these resources reach beyond first grade? The product you receive from the students will be different. In kindergarten, we get most of the response in pictures and conversations. As students move into 1st grade, students will still continue to have conversations, but they will be able to express themselves more deeply. When these students provide a response, we will anticipate multiple sentences. We have also provided an interactive notebook prompt option for students who are ready to write paragraphs!! πŸ™‚

      1. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply! This makes perfect sense and I used these resources today with the book, and it went over VERY WELL!!! So excited about the results and writing students were able to produce after digging deep. Your tips got my mind in the right place and helped tremendously. Thank you again! I’m going to check out your entire sets.

    1. Hi Sonya,

      I just checked on my end. My email server shows the email was opened, but if you did not get it, it might be in your junk folder or it could have been blocked by your school email filter because it is a huge file. It is in the Curriculum Guide download. If you don’t find it, email me and I will try to get it to you that way.
