Strawberry is a loveable, plush, gray mouse who knows how to get young authors involved in creative thinking and the reading and writing process. Strawberry lives at school during the day and travels home with a boy or girl in the evening. Strawberry comes with accessories, which include his pyjamas, toothbrush, a change of clothes, a blanket, a good storybook and a journal, all stored in a backpack. The student records events that happen at home with Strawberry, in Strawberry's journal. The student may dictate to a parent, write the story, or illustrate. The process involves creative writing and reading, since Strawberry loves a good story. Our unit includes big book patterns and a journal. This Primary Studies lesson provides a teacher and student section with big books, journal, and checklist to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
