Inside you will find lesson plans and activities for a week long study of Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes. We use this in conjunction with a six week author study of Kevin Henkes. So within the lesson plans you may find reference to that.
Skills and strategies discussed in this unit are:
*compare and contrast
I have included graphic organizers for sequencing and comparing/contrasting, as well as extra student practice handouts that can be used either in a literacy station or during the lesson.
You will find two sets of vocabulary cards. One with only the word, and the other that includes the definition. There is also a literacy station activity with vocabulary and an optional vocabulary test.
We typically use the literacy stations on Friday, but you are welcome to incorporate them however works best for you!
