This is one of my MOST favorite books to read during the Autumn season! It's so engaging and interactive. I love when I can enlist the help of my class with reading this book. For years, before all of the fabulous clipart choices we have now, I made felt pieces to go along with this book. Thank goodness times have changed and I now have resources to create a book companion that complements this wonderful, seasonal book. It's a perfect fit for K-2 students!
In this packet, you will find:
*1 set of large retell cards
*1 set of pocket chart sized retell cards

*Sequencing headbands (Give each student a sentence strip
and have them sequence the story by coloring, cutting, and
gluing the pictures. Then, staple the sentence strip together to
make a sequencing hat.)
*Sequencing strips (Give each student a sentence strip and have them glue the pictures in order to make a retelling strip.)
