Spookley, the Square Pumpkin!


This week, the students listened to the story, The Legend of Spookley, the Square Pumpkin and created their own Spookley’s.  Next up, the children will work on ‘Text-to-Self’ connections, and a story map. The purpose of the text-to-self activity is to help beginning readers connect with what they are reading; this strategy helps readers better understand the reading content.  The second activity is a story map.  The students will identify the characters, setting and main story events, another strategy for improving reading comprehension
