Full of hands-on activities and critical thinking, your students will deliver physical metaphors to brighten the day for someone special. They’ll measure, design, and style clothing using miniature dress-making dummies just like Irene’s mother, and they’ll perform and share in an active vocabulary in context activity. Of course, this bundle contains plenty of critical thinking questions to keep those minds humming while the hands are not busy.
This unit is right on target for middle elementary—2nd and 3rd grade especially, but 4th and 5th grade classrooms will enjoy it as well.
You get Common Core references, teacher notes and instructions, pictures and samples, ready-to-print activity sheets in developing metaphors, and a vocabulary chart you can use for other literature and other grades.
It’s all here. Pick up William Steig’s classic picture book Brave Irene from the library and be ready to begin tomorrow.
