This product is great for the first week of school or soft skills week. The mentor text of Giraffes Can't Dance is such an encouraging book for students to see that they may not be able to do something yet... but they can if they look at things differently.
This product includes 4 activities to use with students.
The 4 activities included are;
1. Choose YET - students will create a bubble map with items that they can't do yet but want to know how to do before the end of the school year.
2. Choose to I can't draw... yet - students complete a directed drawing of a giraffe.
3. Choose to know the power of yet - Students create word bubbles for YET statements for the things they want to learn to do.
4. Choose different cultures - students bring in a food of their culture/home so other students can taste it and write about it!
This is probably one my favorite mentor texts to use with students and they love it!
