This week, the "theme" is Language Arts. We are sharing a book called Spoon. If you've read this before you know how adorable it is. If you haven't ever read it..it's a MUST READ! Our kiddos love it and we do too!
This is the blurb Amazon had about Spoon and it perfectly captures the essence of the book:
We especially agree with the last sentence in this blurb. :) As for a LA tie, we use an Opinion Writing activity after Spoon. The students have to say which utensil they'd want to be and why. As you know with Common Core a big emphasis is showing "evidence." While teaching Opinion Writing we talk about giving clear and specific reasoning for your opinion, this worksheet allows them to do this. If you'd like a copy of this activity, click on the picture below. This book is guaranteed to be a big hit in your classrooms as it is in ours.
