Activities based on the book by Candice Ransom
We had a fantastic author visit by Candice Ransom, and this was a great way to prepare students for her visit with this fantastic book! It's been in print for almost 25 years!
I focused on the concept of empty and full with my students, as well as sequencing the objects the girl puts in her pocketbook during the story. Then, you can connect the story in two ways to your students' lives: discussing lost things, favorite things, or things you might collect from a special day.
Two lesson plans are included based on what topic you'd rather focus on, along with a sequencing activity, suggestions for extensions to the book, and a follow-up activity students complete independently.
