One of my favorite character building read aloud and shared reading stories is A Bad Case of the Stripes, by David Shannon.
I created this Close Reading Comprehension Packet to make students closely read the text, write amazing responses, and even sing along to a few songs related to the theme of this wonderful story - BE YOURSELF!
This set includes:
• A bulletin board set
• Extended thinking writing activities
• Fun activities to do on your own or with a partner
• 2 Poems
• 7 Song Lyrics to learn and sing together as a class to build community and acceptance
• Vocabulary activity
• Comprehension questions
• Book report template
• Persuasive essay directions
• and more!
Have fun reading this story as a read aloud, shared reading text, and completing all the wonderful extension activities in this packet with your students.
