Your class will love exploring this extraordinary author illustrator and his stories!
What fun for an author study or helping to teach reading for meaning.
There are 3 forms of information for students to learn about Lionni.
A single page article, a read for detail, and a 10 page mini book.
Following reading about Lionni the students can gather information and then complete a true/false or a fact/opinion to recall and assess.
As you get into his stories the class will love taking a closer look at some of their favorite characters.
There are graphic organizers as well as a selection of three class book covers and differentiated writing pages.
These can be followed by a data collection page, an illustration and the lesson each character helped the class to learn.
The next section of the packet gets into the individual stories. Each story has a craft, 2 or 3 comprehension activities, vocabulary and a math game.
Not shown here is also a sponge painting activity for Swimmy.
My favorite for Swimmy is the goldfish sort page. What fun the class will have counting and snacking.
I think one of my favorites is Cornelius.
Not shown here but in the packet is an "egg" traordinary activity using plastic eggs and information from each student. It is a great "feel good" activity.
We all know A Color of Its Own. What color would you choose to be?
Frederick brings us seasons and roles we each play.
Ending with Inch By Inch thick also includes a snack of gummy worms...for measuring if you want!!
