|Discussion topics for during/after reading: |
What is a memory?
Ever have a hard time remembering? What helps?
What do you think of when I say... Seashell? Boat? Car? Dress? Suit? Store? Baseball glove?
|Craft ideas: |
Make a basket of memories.
Make a memory book - draw something that: is old, is precious as gold, makes you laugh and cry, is warm, is cold, is from long ago.
*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions.
You can use them, but you dont have to use them.
You can expand upon them, or add your own twist.
Remember, though, that the focus of your time should
not be on the development and execution of a craft;
the focus should be on the read-aloud and the
enjoyment of the book!
