As we finish up our unit on friends and familyWe read the book “I Love it When You Smile” by Sam McBratney.  We filled out a thinking map writing about elements of a story.

Then students were given their own individual pictures of the problem and solution.  We decorated our pictures, matched them to the problem and solution.  As we matched them we retold the story through problem and solution.

We then made a connection with the story as we talked about how our mom’s take care of us just like Roo’s mom helped make him feel better when he was grumpy.  Then we wrote about our mom’s with our sight words and we made construction paper mom’s.
