Product Description

Do you like using picture books to teach comprehension, vocabulary, and writing skills? Would you like a comprehensive resource that also includes a STEM project, snack and craft ideas? What if you could use it for literacy stations or word work centers? That's exactly what this book companion resource offers!

This literacy pack is made as a companion to Mr. Wrinkles, a picture book we found at our local dollar discount store! It's written by Robert Pearce, and it's illustrated by Jacqueline East. (This book is also available at libraries and online stores, and there is even a video of a dad reading this book aloud on YouTube, if you'd like to share it with your students in that manner.)

Use these resources as stand-alone literacy components to support your students' work on comprehension, vocabulary, writing, and MORE! You can also use it for centers or stations during your literacy block.

Here's what we've included:

  • five comprehension graphic organizers:
    • theme - this one is so tricky for kids many times, so the more practice they get, the better they are able to identify themes
    • sequence of events
    • story elements - character, setting, problem, solution, beginning, middle, end
    • five-finger retelling - a critical skill to help with summarizing
    • making connections - connecting this fun text with their own lives and other books

  • comprehension questions (and answer key) - perfect as a culminating comprehension quiz

  • vocabulary practice:
    • vocabulary cards and definitions
    • vocabulary graphic organizer for students to record words and meanings
    • vocabulary mini-book
    • vocabulary quiz - another possible culminating activity

  • STEM project - create an elephant using marshmallows

  • snack ideas - ants aren't the only thing that can be on a log

  • craft activity - make an elephant using our template and a party blower/horn

  • two writing prompts and fun paper for students

That's enough to last you a week - and your students will be engaged and learning and sharing a piece of literature throughout it all!
