Our first graders have met David, of "David Goes to School" fame, and Chrysanthemum, from her own self titled book, and finally they got to meet Lilly, from Kevin Henke's book, "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse." Kids love Kevin Henke's book characters, and Lilly is no exception. They fall in love with that cute little mouse and soon realize that she has a bit of a naughty side to her. We learn so much about respect, school leaders, citizenship, etc, through Lilly.
After reading and talking about the messages in the story, the kids wrote down what they thought was the most important thing they will remember.
After a couple of other reader's response activities, the kids had the opportunity to make their very own movie star glasses. Lilly would have loved them!!
Now, off to school!! Stephanie's Ponytail awaits!! :)
Have a great day!! And remember, do not play with your purse!! :)
