Scaredy Squirrel books are a hit with kids of all ages! I have put together 18 literacy activities that use "Scaredy Squirrel Makes A Friend" and "Scaredy Squirrel at Night" as mentor texts. Your kiddos will be highly engaged while developing essential literacy skills.
*Story Elements (character, setting, problem, solution)
*Labeling Pictures (x4)
*Tree Map (pre-writing)
*Graphic Organizer (draft)
*Final Paragraph (published)
*Writing Steps (printing)
*ABC Order (x2)
For the final activity students will create their own version of “Scaredy Squirrel” following a similar format to the books. They are encouraged to be creative and original.
*decide on a problem
*tell things he is afraid he will encounter
*decide what he needs to be prepared
*draw and label his action plan
*draw what happens unexpectedly.
They will be proud to share this with the class!
Please have a look at the preview so you can see everything that is included! I have included both coloured and black and white versions of every activity.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my unit!
