Do you read the book “The Scarecrow’s Hat”
by Ken Brown? It’s one of my personal, all-time favorite scarecrow stories.
Because of all the “swapping” going on with the various characters in the story, “Scarecrow’s Hat” is perfect for practicing the “sequencing and retelling a story”
With that in mind, I designed two different
“Scarecrow’s Hat” craftivities, which help students practice both of those standards.
One is a 3-dimensional hat made out of a yellow bowl.
When flipped over, it shows a hen sitting on her “nest”, which tells the end of the story, and answers the question of why the hen wanted the hat that made all that "swapping work" worthwhile.
The other craftivity is a a “flip-the-flap” booklet made out of the top of the scarecrow’s hat.
After I finished designing both hat projects, I decided to make the bowl-hat for myself, to share with my students after I read the story, as a means of reviewing the sequence of the book, then I had them transition to making the booklet, which is a bit easier because there’s no drying time involved with liquid, Elmer’s glue.
I was then able to review with one project, while further reinforcing the “sequencing & retelling” a story standards, with the other. The booklet also gave me a means of testing their comprehension as well.
Because of this, I thought I’d BUNDLE both activities, incase you’d like to do that too, which provides an almost $2 savings that way.
