Product Description
This set includes four activities to go along with Scaredy Squirrel, by Melanie Watt. First, there's a character map, where students can draw and write details about Scaredy Squirrel's character traits. Then, there is a Story Map. This book is excellent for teaching beginning story elements, because it is very straightforward. Next, there are two guided writing activities (double-sided pages), with primary lines, sentence frames, and words from the story. The first writing activity asks students to write about the story elements, and the second asks students to make a connection to the story.

I've used these activities with my 1st and 2nd grade students, and each one typically takes about 30-45 minutes each. This is in addition to reading the story, of course. These pages are great for emerging writers, especially ELL students, because the sentence frames get them started and help structure their sentences.

*Hint--If you have a projector, use the Epic app (free to teachers) https://www.getepic.com/ and read the story that way. Scaredy Squirrel is available on that site. This activity works well for 1st or 2nd grade ELA, and is aligned to CCSS.
