A Weekend with Wendell by Kevin HenkesWendell was spending the weekend at Sophies house. Playing house, Wendell was the mother, the father, and the children; Sophie was the dog. Playing bakery, Wendell was the baker; Sophie got to be the sweet roll. Wendell shone his flashlight in Sophies eyes when she tried to sleep. But when he gave her a new hairdo with shaving cream, it was the last straw, and Sophie made up a game that left Wendell speechless for a time -- and won the day for friendship.
Mrs. Hilario’s First Grade
My class is wrapping up their author study about Kevin Henkes. We really enjoyed reading his books and comparing them. After we read each book, we discussed the characters, setting, problem, solution, and lesson of the story. It was awesome to see the students get better and better at this with each story we read. Figuring out the lesson of the story was the trickiest, but the students proved up to the challenge and could find multiple lessons in each. After reading all of the books, we compared them by sticking up note cards with the information about each book and had a discussion.
Three Ways to Read Kevin Henkes Books
Post a Comment. Happy Labor Day everyone! Hope you had a relaxing and wonderful long weekend! I sure did! Last week we finished up our month long study of books by Kevin Henkes. The kids absolutely loved reading his books. Not only did we read the books but we acted them out, discussed them and wrote about them.
I enjoyed getting to share with parents what a day in first grade is like. As always, if you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me.
