Flip, Flap, Fly! by Phyllis Root / Reading Wonders Aligned
Flip, Flap, Fly, is a cute, rhyming book about 7 different baby animals and their movement. I created this lesson plan to go along with the book.
Here are some ideas on how to use this language + literacy lesson plan:
*When introducing what “character” and “setting” mean:
--Each animal is a “character” while their home/habitat is their “setting” in the book.
--Place the animal cards with their associated habitat/“setting” card (duck and otter have the same card)
--Sort the animal cards in the "Character" group because they are WHO the story is about
--Sort the habitat cards in the "Setting" group because this is WHERE the story takes place when talking about that particular animal
*ALSO--This book goes along with Kindergarten McGraw-Hill Reading Wonders Unit 1 Week 2:
--Essential Question: How do baby animals move?
--Category: Family Words
--Theme: Baby Animals
--Activities: Match up the baby animals with their movement card
--Use the Family cards to help name “family words”
--Use the “what” and “where” cards to target question-answer skills.
