Product Description

My goal as an educator is to create products that encourage critical-thinking and rich discussion. Some important topics in this book include: friendship, inclusion/ exclusion, cliques, and individuality. This package encourages students to consider how to make their own classroom an accepting and inclusive space.

This product includes:

  1. Pre-read: Would You Rather: Students work with a partner to answer the “would you rather” questions based on themes from the book.
  2. What Makes You Unique?: A prevalent theme in the book is about being true to yourself and embracing your differences. In Nerdy Birdy style, students are asked to list three things they are good at, and to draw a self-portrait.
  3. Commonalities and Differences: This activity is an excellent ice-breaker/ get-to-know-you activity.
  4. What is Friendship?: After reading the book, students are asked to consider what friendship is to them.
  5. Roll and Answer Discussion Questions: Students work with a partner to roll a dice and take turns answering questions.
  6. Roll and Answer Writing Prompt: Students may choose one of the discussion questions from the previous activity and elaborate in writing.
  7. Central Message: A graphic organizer to be completed to determine the central message of the story.
  8. Summary: Students summarize the events in the story by using the “Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then” graphic organizer.
  9. What is a ‘Clique’?: Students consider how cliques can be ended by creating a list of rules.
  10. Inclusive Classroom: Students are asked to consider how they can make their own classroom more inclusive for everyone by completing the graphic organizer.
  11. Drama Skits Choice Board: This activity is a way to further reinforce the learning from the book, and would work as a great culminating activity.

I hope you enjoy!
