Here is what we’ve been up to over the last few weeks:
We suggest the following steps in approaching the story either as a parent or as a teacher….
Teachers please note that these stories are wonderful starting points for students’ writing. Use City Kids and Country Kids as models for students’ own writing.
At the end of each book there is a section called Who’s Cool? Which offers a range of extension literacy activities associated with the book. Each title also has two black line masters which aim at extending students’ thinking about the story. There is also an introduction to each group of 8 Too Cool titles which provides an overall teaching perspective to using the books in a literacy program.
Please follow the instructions to download/print the teacher’s notes.
