This is the perfect book for the beginning of school.
There are a lot of opportunities for discussing feelings during "back to school time".
I love the story of the little mouse who wants to take his blanket to school.
As a kindergarten teacher, I don't know how many times I have had that sweet child who wanted to bring his or her blanket, teddy bear, toy car, etc. to school with them!! It's a story everyone can relate to, no matter the age.
The story is great for teaching problem-solution and cause and effect.
Includes materials for:
Problem and Solution
Cause and Effect: includes pocket chart cards (10)
for matching a cause to the effect
Story Sequencing Activities
Making Inferences: differentiated...you can choose for the level of your students!
Story Elements Mini Book
Sorting Cards (18) : Things you take to school VS. Things you leave at home
The cause and effect materials can be used whole group, small group or at a literacy center...
Ideas for use are included....all of the pages are represented in the preview!
I AM SHARING MY FAVORITE STORY TIME ACTIVITY EVER WITH THIS PACKET...Such a fun activity to do with children while discussing "back to school feelings" and separation from home.
This is a great set for a school counselor classroom session!!
Use these materials with the book by Kevin Henkes (the book is not included).
