This week we are reading a great story about a dog's courage called, Akiak: A Tale from the Iditarod. My students have fallen in love with this story. It has led to many discussions about how animals can show courage and be just as brave as people.
I thought I'd share a cute activity that they are working on…
I think he turned out adorable! I can't wait to hang these in the hallway. They are working on sequence this week - so they had to "draw" the major events in the story. Then they used their drawings to write the sentences.
Love the blue eyes!
I made up a little packet to share on Teacher's Notebook. It included the patterns to make Akiak as well as a variety of writing forms/prompts. I also made a little scavenger hunt where my students have to look back in the story to find some things. Hoping to help them remember important details about the story.
