PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teacher Notes:

Before reading the book to your students, preview the new vocabulary and all of the opposite words. Either in whole group or in think, pair, share, have your students discuss the meanings of the words and why the author and illustrator chose each adjective for each specific animal. After reading the story two or three times over the course of the week and reviewing vocabulary, assign or have your students choose one set of opposite words for their independent activity. There are two different leveled activities to meet your students' needs for each set of opposite words. When the students have completed their activity, have them share it with you and explain their illustration and/or writing in further detail.

*I use this activity in the beginning of the year to introduce vocabulary. This lesson is used to model asking and answering questions about unknown words in a text. The common core standard addressed is: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.K.4

Activity 1: wild/tame (student illustrates only)
Activity 2: wild/tame (student illustrates and writes a sentence about the meaning of the word)
Activity 3: lazy/busy (student illustrates only)
Activity 4: lazy/busy (student illustrates and writes a sentence about the meaning of the word)
Activity 5: weak/strong (student illustrates only)
Activity 6: weak/strong (student illustrates and writes a sentence about the meaning of the word)
