Lots of language-based fun with Moonbear’s Shadow; a Frank Asch Bear book. Moonbear’s shadow scares away a fish he is trying to catch. He tries everything he can to get rid of the shadow so that he can catch his fish. What follows is a delightful sequence of actions on his part.
In this resource you will find materials and ideas for using this story to teach children some basic parts of story structure, as well as vocabulary and thinking about stories. There are comprehension questions aligned to the Common Core State Standards.
There are guided reading suggestions for three days along with activities to try and resources for discussing shadows.
There are sequencing and story element activities with options for words or symbols, and a book report format.
There are some vocabulary cards and activities. Make 2 copies of the vocabulary cards and have students play a “Memory” type game with them, saying each word as they are turned over and matching pairs.
