THE RECESS QUEEN--Read Aloud Activity Packet
What a wonderful story about a simple act of kindness changing the way everything works! Alexis O'Neil's, The Recess Queen, uses a main character named Mean Jean to demonstrate the idea of bullying at recess. She also has a new kid named Katie Sue that changes everything on the playground. This packet gives you many activities to use with your students. It includes vocabulary word list, flash cards, discussion questions, discussion cards for small groups, 14 pages of written responses to the story, short answer questions, word search, story snapshot, and a theme poster design with a writing piece. Bullying is looked at through the students' eyes, and the theme of kindness also shows how a person's actions can be changed for the better.
