Product Description
With our climate so full of instances of bullying, Chris Van Allsburg’s The Widow’s Broom is a perfect book to teach tolerance and acceptance; beautifully illustrated and perfect for a more meaningful October reading than the usual fare—and, its theme is applicable all year, every year—I’ve included Activator, Mini Lesson, Activity, Wrap Up, and overarching ELA Common Core Anchor Standard. An Activator prompt sets the tone for reflecting about differences, a discussion on tolerance and culture and the elements of fairy tales, plus a more light hearted creative writing and illustrating assignment all equals a classroom climate of equality for all, no matter race, culture, traditions, etc. Best, Rockermom
