107 pages of writing fun with a puppy! These are activities to go with the book "Rocket Writes a Story" by Tad Hills. This resource is aligned to Common Core State Standards for grades K-2.
This is a great book study to use at the start of the year, and then to come back to again and again for different skills throughout the year.
There are printable word cards for shared reading and small group instruction, as well as independent work for students to extend their learning. Many of the writing mini-lesson ideas can be used with other stories as well.
The following topics are included:
• story elements
• character traits/character development
• word tree
• alphabet/letter sound/handwriting practice
• writing mini-lesson pages/ideas
• vocabulary development
• 5 senses in writing
• printable paper for writing
• miscellaneous—including an owl craft, name tags, desk nameplates.
