We created the Losing Your Marbles Book Handouts to use with the Losing Your Marbles Book and to benefit kids in the following ways:
Losing Your Marbles Character Sketch
Neuroscientists have discovered that reading fiction activates the same part of the brain as real life experience. This means that when kids are engaged in reading a story, their brains live vicariously through the characters, improving their ability to understand what other people are thinking, feeling and doing (Theory of Mind).
Use the Losing Your Marbles Character Sketch with the Losing Your Marbles Book to help kids interact with what they're reading, while deepening their empathy and developing their social skills.
Losing Your Marbles Story Map
Help kids become engaged and active readers while growing their comprehension, self-expression and creativity.
Using the Losing Your Marbles Story Map with the Losing Your Marbles Book encourages kids to visualize the story’s characters, setting and sequencing of events. This develops their knowledge of the key elements of a story and assists them with telling, retelling, summarizing and even writing stories themselves.
Fun meets creativity when kids design their own special marble and give it a name.
