This print-and-go resource includes everything you need to supplement your reading of The Empty Pot by Demi, a fantastic story that emphasizes the importance of honesty.

This print-and-go resource includes the following activities:

  • Front Cover visualization (to be completed before you read the book)
  • Charting the Details: Beginning-Middle-End graphic organizer (answer key included)
  • Retelling Booklet – create a 6-page booklet to retell the story
  • Sequencing Events (answer key included)
  • Cause & Effect (two templates – one with “cause” column filled out – answer key included - and one blank)
  • Vivid Vocabulary (answer key included)
  • My Favorite Scene - drawing activity

  • Fill the Pots – following directions and drawing activity
  • Honest or Not? Critical thinking activity

This is a fantastic story that acts as a great discussion starter for conversations about the importance of honesty and acting with integrity.

Note: I am not associated with the book or the author – I just enjoy reading it with my students each year and I wanted to create print-and-go activities to help simplify your lesson planning. You can purchase the book on Amazon, at your local book store, or check it out from the library.
