Read aloud THE DIARY OF A WORM by Doreen Cronin. This worm lives with his parents, plays with his friends, and goes to school. But he never has to take a bath, gets to eat his homework, and because he doesn't have legs, he just can't do the hokey pokey – no matter how hard he tries.
This funny picture book tells the daily doings of a small worm in a gigantic worm world.
Invite your students to choose a nonhuman character and use personification and point-of-view to write their own diaries. You'll all be giggling as students try to think like the character they've chosen.

Perspective/point of view anchor chart.
See, think, and wonder chart.
Researching fun science facts.
