Or… A rolling stone gathers no moss (I’m working on an idiom activity that uses this one!).
I bought the super adorable princess/dragon clip art a while back to use not only in my book unit for The Paper Bag Princess, but also for another favorite contrarian-princess book, The Princess and the Dragon (actually if you click on this link, Amazon clumps them as “Frequently bought together”).
The Princess and the Dragon is about a princess that isn’t very princess-like, and a dragon that isn’t very dragon-like….and they end up switching roles!
So of course this book is awesome not only for comparing and contrasting the two main characters and what others think of them!
I love book units because they incorporate one of the main purposes of school (reading!) with what I am about (speech!). Plus, they work well for so many goals and can easily be the equivalent of one month’s worth of activities!
In this book unit I have included:
Pages 3-9: Vocabulary instructions, 8 card pairs, 4 special cards, Worksheet for home or therapy time, Phrases
Page 30-34: Story Retelling instructions, blank sequencing cards, Story Comprehension Cube, Story map, Story Retelling Rubric
Pages 35-40: Articulation instructions, 4 special cards, 8 /k, g/ cards, 8 /l/ cards, 16 /r/ cards, 8 /s, z/ cards (all easily sortable by color and name of target sound conveniently printed on the sides).
