Product Description
This is a supplement for a read aloud of the four stories shown on the cover. It is intended for grades K-4. It can be used as either a stand alone philosophy discussion or as a read aloud supplement to your existing read aloud activities.

Packet includes:

A brief description of what you will be doing as a facilitator.
How the Common Core Standards are met by a philosophical discussion.
General ideas on how to integrate writing as an extension activity to philosophy.

Includes lessons for:

What To Do With An Idea? by Kobi Yamada
Splat the Cat Back to School, Splat! by Rob Scotton
The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown
Frederick by Leo Lionni

Each story lesson includes:

A summary of the philosophy in the story.
Philosophical question set.
Most also contain additional extension activities specific to the philosophy of the story.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are several ways to implement these lessons.

1. For a purely philosophical discussion:

***** Read straight through the story before returning to the pages to ask questions. (Best for young students or students new to philosophy.)

OR

Stop during the reading and ask students their opinion on these questions.

2. Blend with other literacy activities:

To build this into your regular reading instruction, insert these questions
into the story along with your own read aloud questions.

OR

***** You could also hold these questions till the end. Ask the questions you
would normally ask during a read aloud, then return to the indicated page
in the Points of Discussion to ask a related philosophical question.
