As we look at these boxes, we gather more ideas to add to the Letter Cycles or Name Cycles we develop.
A wonderful kindergarten teacher, Diane, who taught the Shared Reading Lesson for, The Little Old Lady Who Swallowed A Pie http://www.amazon.com/Know-Swallowed-Picture-Puffin-Books/dp/0140565957/ref=sr_1_7?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1321819865&sr=1-7 , last week sent my pictures!
This is the Little Old Lady! http://www.amazon.com/There-Was-Old-Lady-Storysack/dp/0859538354/ref=sr_1_cc_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1321819971&sr=1-3-catcorr She found her own food items since the Old Lady swallows different items in this story.
The students made their own Old Lady with a baggy as a tummy to hold their food on day five. The students retell the story with their own Old Lady.
We used the Houghton Mifflin chart to reinforce sequencing chart. The children practiced retelling the story using the sequence skill in the pocket chart, and on their own papers and their own little pieces.
(Diane took this teaching opportunity in science to include a lesson on food groups, notice the sort in the pocket chart)
Students had several opportunities to retell the story using the puppet after the teacher modeled. Each student also made their own puppet.
I wrote up the Shared Reading lessons on Writing Every Day Works.
The materials are from the site: http://lilcountrykindergarten.blogspot.com/2011/11/i-know-old-lady-who-swallowed-pie.html
This is NOT ALL that Diane did. This is just the wonderful extra that http://candokinders.blogspot.com/2011/11/youve-gotta-see-this.html and http://lilcountrykindergarten.blogspot.com/2011/11/i-know-old-lady-who-swallowed-pie.html did not write about yet.
Several blogs recommend these “Talk Points” as tools for reminding kids what to do during a center or during the busy time during the day. It is a great way to have a ‘teacher voice’ on a machine.
