Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse is such a fun book for kindergarten and first grade. This book by Kevin Henkes gives you an opportunity to reinforce classroom expectations while falling in love another one of his characters!

Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse:  Responding to Literature

Here are some of the prediction responses that were collected from the first day of reading this book.  These responses were sent to us from a sweet teacher.  We sure love seeing our Guiding Readers units being used in the classroom.  These are from a first-grade teacher (so kindergarten teachers… don’t cry).  Kindergarten response pages are different. Students in kindergarten convey their predictions through the illustrations.  (Kindergarten teachers:  Do you feel better now?)

I love reading the invented spelling in these prediction responses.

I love the random “I love you” in this response.

Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse:  STEM Activity

Students would simply build a purse for Lily.  Here is one that I received.  First, the students would design a purse, then they would build it.   Students can do this activity together or cooperatively.  You can find all of the pieces for this activity HERE.

    I can’t find where you can actually download the free unit?

    • Deedee August 5 at 9:09 am

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

      • Patrice August 5 at 5:08 pm

        I’ve been going in circles looking for it too. ???

        • Deedee August 5 at 7:42 pm

          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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • jackie simmons August 31 at 12:01 pm

    Love your unit….download please!

    • Deedee September 1 at 10:07 am

      Hi there!

      You can download it by entering your information in the box at the end of the blog post ๐Ÿ™‚

  • KIM HOLTER September 21 at 7:01 am

    Do I need to enter my email EVERY TIME there is a free file that I would like to download?

    • Deedee September 21 at 8:22 am

      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.

  • Leah Wallace January 29 at 10:55 am

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

      I just pushed it out to you. You should see an email in your inbox that you will need to click on ๐Ÿ™‚

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

    • Deedee March 22 at 7:16 am

      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!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Kathy March 23 at 7:13 pm

        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! Iโ€™m going to check out your entire sets.

      Hi Julie, You just need to enter an email at the end of the blog post. If your school email is not working, try another one. Many schools block email distribution via sign up lists like the one found on blogs.

  • Sonya M Holloway December 11 at 7:29 pm

    I never received the Lily Purple Plastic Purse. I entered my information several times and nothing came.

    • Deedee December 11 at 7:35 pm

      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.
