PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney is a great book for discussing dreams for making the world a better place. It works well for Earth Day too!
I’m thrilled to offer you a product that pairs fiction with non-fiction.
Here are some teaching tips to keep in mind when you read this book with your students:
-Start with the pre-reading activities. Then, use the QR code to scan to watch a video of Miss Rumphius. Tips for viewing it are on page 5 or 26.
-Use the vocabulary anticipation guide first before reading, and then discussion cards throughout the week to build deeper understanding. Use the vocabulary words to help students write a prediction.
-Make enough copies of the mini-booklet for everyone to use while you read the story to help students focus their thinking on the characters and events that unfold.
-Pairing Non-fiction with fiction is a powerful reading skill. I’ve included a How-To essay with questions to follow that will supplement Miss Rumphius.
-After reading, use the story map flap-book template to recall the story events and then to write a short summary. This works well in a reader’s response or interactive notebook. I included one of my favorite writing scaffolds for summaries. This will benefit everyone, particularly your challenged writers.
-Choose from two writing opportunities to culminate this unit on pages 20 or 21. Select the ones that will suit your lesson plans and classroom needs.
