Hi teacher friends =)
Attached are two pages for my class' Read Aloud Journal for the book The Colors of Us by Karen Katz.
Page 1 features the following sections:
- My favorite part and a corresponding illustration
- A new vocabulary word
- Something I learned from this book
- I wonder
Page 2 features the following sections:
- Celebrating Diversity (For this part of the journal, my class mixed paints to create different shades of skin we're in based on the book (cinnamon, honey, etc.), then used the oval-shaped templates to create 9 people with different shades of skin, and lastly wrote the name of the skin color (butterscotch, pizza crust, etc.) next to each person they created.
- Text-to-Self Connection (My class drew a self-portrait on the left and an illustration of the object (coconut, chocolate, etc.) on the right.)
