About Big Book: Rapunzel, Rapunzel:
Rapunzel, Rapunzel! is a spin-off from the traditional fairytale. Before reading the Big Book version, students should be familiar with the traditional tale. For Kindergarten, you may want to tell the story orally, simplifying the storyline. Proceed with Rapunzel, Rapunzel! Students will use rhythm and rhyme in oral and written activities, will attempt and practice reading behaviours, will recognize the point of view of the story, will associate words and letters with sounds in a meaningful context, will recognize exclamation marks for placing emphasis, and understand purpose of the dialogue balloon and quotation marks. Strategies include reading to students, repeating repetitive patterns, and brainstorming.
About Big Book: There Was An Old Lady:
Add some fun to your favorite big book story. In There Was An Old Lady, students will learn rhythm and rhyme in oral activities, while practising reading and learning to recognize point of view in the story. Contents include Big Book, Little Book, flannelboard and storytelling instructions, flannelboard patterns, storytelling prop, and activities.
About Big Book: Have You Seen My Fish?:
This story in our resource was written in Lac La Ronge, SK in 1991 at a conference theme-building workshop. The co-authors have included Cree words in their dialect. The story is about a boy who looks for his fish. He sees all kinds of fish before he finds his pet. The story introduces Cree vocabulary of kinship words. The repetitive text provides encouragement and success for emerging readers. Themes involve families and pets. Included resources in our unit are patterns to make a big book, and patterns to make a flannelboard story. Students will learn kinship terms in another language or their mother language, will listen to a story, and will retell the story using pictures.
This Big Books Set provides a teacher and student section with reading passages, big book, little book assembly, flannelboard, and activities to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
