Discuss the difference between mean and nice.
Today while reading the students will rewrite the Meanies version into the Nicies version by adding sentence strips.
What do meanies do? Meanies drink their bath water, but nicies drink clean water.
Read each page chorally, then discuss what the nicies could do. Teacher writes the sentence strip.
Every student is given a picture of what the nicies do. As the teacher turns the pages, the children put their picture in the pocket chart.
