Reading, writing, and comprehension ideas for the book Pinkalicious. Valentine’s Day Math and Literacy Center ideas too!

We love this fun book, Pinkalicious by Victoria Kann and illustrated by Elizabeth Kann. Here is a brief synopsis of the book. Pinkalicious is a little girl whose favorite color is pink. She loves pink foods like cotton candy and bubblegum. Most importantly Pinkalicious loves eating pink cupcakes. [Same here, Pinkalicious, same here.]

Even though she was warned not to eat too many, she can’t help herself. After Pinkalicious eats one too many unhealthy foods, she turns pink herself!

Pinkalicious fans will be happy to know there are a few additional picture books.

Although we read this book around Valentine’s Day the whole series makes these some of our favorite books to read at any time of the year.

Pinkalicious Lesson Plans: Close Reading

We knew this book was a great way to engage students, so we decided to include it in our Engaging Readers Reading Comprehension units.

This is such a fun book. With close reading, you will want to be sure you select a book that both you and your students will enjoy each day during the week. As you know, we revisit this text many times as we dive deeper into the meaning of the book.

Doing whatever it takes to get a cupcake? She might just be my twin separated at birth!

Pinkalicious Lesson Plans on Visualizing

Visualizing was the first activity we did when we start reading Pinkalicious.  Giving the students the opportunity to visualize is so important, even with picture books!

Pinkalicious Lesson Plans on Retelling

We also want students to pay attention to the text details and story elements. We practice this all year long with the support of each other. Then when it is time for quarterly assessments (DRA or Founta & Pinnell) the students already know how to retell the text! Game! Changer!

Students can also retell on an iPad or your interactive whiteboard.  We have added a PowerPoint to the file, so you can have a digital version.

This makes a great student learning center.  Students can practice oral language while retelling the story.

I simply love this 1st-grade example! Digestive system... classic! Love it! So many great things in this example. Stretching out the sounds is spot on! Being fearless! I could go on and on!

Pinkalicious Lesson Plans on Inferring 

This is another great writing example. Reading and writing are reciprocal! We don’t teach them in isolation!

We also have grammar lessons for each of the books. This week we worked on adjectives!

You can also find a series of videos and fun activities on the PBS Kids website.
