This product should be used with Helen Lester books. Although the products are able to be edited, the recommended books to use are:
-Hooway for Wodney Wat
-Tacky the Penguin
-Three Cheers for Tacky
Additional Books to Use:
-What Do Author's Do? (activity included)
-If You Give a Pig a Pancake (used for comparison/opinion with Me First)
This book study can be used however you wish. I recommend beginning with "What Do Author's Do?" and completing the activity. There are also great youtube videos about Helen Lester that can be shared to introduce your study. After that you may choose to use the activities as you wish. At the end of the study you can use the book evaluation to allow your kindergarteners to rate her books!
-Narrating a Single Event
*All activities correlate with a book except Tacky the Penguin books. We made puppets and did a retell after reading those two stories!
