Sheila Rae the Brave by Kevin Henkes is a beloved book in my classroom! Check out my Sheila Rae lesson plans!
Just like all of Kevin Henkes books, the illustrations are PRICELESS!
This story lends itself well to recalling text details, but many of the details are not sequentially linked. We decided to sort events by things that were in the story or not in the story. You can find these text detail cards HERE.
The skills covered in this book are:
- text details
- character analysis
- making connections
- opinion writing
