Product Description
Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren is a classic book, which like many classics, has been banned at some point. Most adults and children, however, love reading about someone who opens their minds to new ideas and ways of thinking and who has such a positive and confident self-image. Thing-Finding and playing Don't Touch the Floor are just two fun activities your students can do along with Pippi. Students will delight in exercising their imaginations and reading about Pippi's humor and outrageousness. Besides reviewing the facts of the story, questions in the unit span text-to-self, text-to-world, and text-to-text as well as brainstorming, imagining, inferencing, and describing.
