Or... A rolling stone gathers no moss (I'm working on an idiom activity that uses this one!).
I bought the super adorable princess/dragon clip art a while back to use not only in my book unit for The Paper Bag Princess, but also for another favorite contrarian-princess book, The Princess and the Dragon (actually if you click on this link, Amazon clumps them as "Frequently bought together").
The Princess and the Dragon is about a princess that isn't very princess-like, and a dragon that isn't very dragon-like....and they end up switching roles!
I love book units because they incorporate one of the main purposes of school (reading!) with what I am about (speech!). Plus, they work well for so many goals and can easily be the equivalent of one month's worth of activities!
In this book unit I have included:
Pages 3-9: Vocabulary instructions, 8 card pairs, 4 special cards, Worksheet for home or therapy time, Phrases
Pages 15-19: Synonyms instructions, 8 card pairs, 4 special cards, Worksheet
Pages 20-25: Complex Sentences game board (with a new spinner activity!), 32 Clauses from the story
Pages 26-29: Compare and Contrast instructions, Venn diagram, 2 “What were the characters thinking?” pages
Pages 35-40: Articulation instructions, 4 special cards, 8 /k, g/ cards, 8 /l/ cards, 16 /r/ cards, 8 /s, z/ cards (all easily sortable by color and name of target sound conveniently printed on the sides).
Love it? Consider getting my combo pack of both The Paper Bag Princess and The Princess and the Dragon at a discounted price!
