This zip file contains several activities that will engage your students in the reading of Mo Willems' No dejes que la paloma conduzca el autobus.. The activities are scaffolded to move from basic skills to more advanced skills, focusing on the same book. The main focus of the whole Close Reading is Using Expression through Punctuation The students will use images as evidence that the Pigeon is expressing in a certain way.
The different activities include:
- 4 descriptive words Worksheet (character traits/ opinion)
- 3 types of punctuation Worksheet (character's actions/recall)
- Reasoning Worksheet (Don't let the Pigeon drive the _____ BECAUSE ______.)
- Creative Writing Prompt
- Image analysis (student identifies which type of punctuation is best associated with an image of the Pigeon)
